Hi, I'm a newbie to the site and forums. I got a call just over 2 days ago following a routine bloods tests, which as far as I knew were for my thyroid function as I have Hashimotos. The doctor told me my HB1AC? was really high and they wanted me in the next day. So I saw the doc yesterday, she tested my pee which had ketones and sugar in it and she told me a normal HB1AC result would be 42 or below and over 48 is diabetic and mine was 104. She then talked me through all this stuff, half of which has just blurred after she said it's pretty much sure I have diabetes. She said they needed to confirm it with a second bloods test because I have no symptoms, but from the pee test result it sounded like the 2nd bloods were a formality. She said they would give me a blood glucose monitor and to take some random tests and she would call me on Monday for me to report the results. I saw the nurse, got bloods taken and she gave me a blood glucose monitor, showed me how to use it and did a test on me. My result was 15.0 and it should be 4.0 to 7.0. So I've been checking my bloods yesterday and today and I've had 14.6, 17.0, 13.1, 11.3 and 12.8. With the results being so high I've tried to not eat too much, not have sugar and eat proteiny rather than carbs as I know they will break down to sugar. I just feel kinda overwhelmed by it all, and my usual go to of sweets and wine seem to be out of the window.
