Hi everyone. I've been skirting around the 41 mark for several years as I'm very overweight, disabled so very sedate in activity and with a 1st blood line relative with type 2 diabetes (my dad). After a letter from my weight loss management team querying my marker and requesting another blood test and my gp receptionist getting hissy but finally letting me have another blood test, I recieved a text message at almost 8pm on Monday to ring them. Then Tuesday I get out of the receptionist that my marker is 49. I get upset but I'm told they have no appointments so I'll get a phone call Friday. So today I get a 6 minute call with 'yes it's type 2 diabetes but nothing to worry about' and the diabetic nurse can't see me until 24th June. I feel absolutely gobsmacked. Granted it's just into the range but it is there and I need support and help and I've got nothing. Added to the fact that I'm going on holiday in 10 days to the USA and the only advise was 'don't eat anything with sugar in it.' That was it! Fortunately my dad put me in touch with the makers of his blood glucose testing machine who are sending me a free machine as I've been having hypos for years and even more panicked going away and not being able to see anyone for over a month. Am I overreacting? I just feel I need help.
