    Hi @Windylindy and welcome!

    A couple of questions for you so people know best how to help. Are you type 1 or type 2 and are you taking insulin or any other blood glucose lowering medication?

    I’d guess that the 99 is your HbA1c, but it’d be good to confirm that with your GP.

    In the meantime, although it sounds like you’re not newly diagnosed, this information may still be useful: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/basic-information-for-newly-diagnosed-diabetics.17088/

    Have a good read and come back with any questions.
