    Hi all,

    Today i have been for the first time to my diabetes doctor because she is specialised in that field according to my regular GP in the surgery.

    She asked me how i am, told me i need a flu and pneumonia vaccine and then rushed me to the loo for a sample.
    I told her, my levels are now between 6-8 and that i'm starting loosing weight. She said, i don't need to test daily, only if i feel bad. :x She also said, everything below 10 is fine... :|

    I managed, not to tell her what i think about her. I just asked, when the next hbca test will be. She told me, she will test me in August and by then i will have lost weight anyway.
    I was nearly laughing, i'm size 16 and she is at least 18. :lol: Of course, i wanna lose weight but was thinking she should practise what she preaches.

    I hope you are all well! It's so great, to speak with proper experts on here. :mrgreen:
