Morning all. Some positive signs in my first week but I wanted to seek some advice about my GP appointment next week. I was diagnosed type 2 on Monday when I had a finger prick test of 24!! Sent for a blood test the next morning and I know my HBa1C was 114!! My cholesterol was borderline but kidney and liver were ok. (I’ll get the full results on Tuesday) Having briefly spoken to my GP, I know that when I see her she is planning to change my medication (currently on 1500mg Metformin) although I don’t know what to. I assume this is in response to such a high HBa1C. The thing is, since the moment I walked out the GP I’ve cut out all sugar and kept carbs to an absolute minimum. I tested my blood sugar and they were as follows: Thursday PM - 9.5 Friday AM - 8.8 Saturday AM - 8.4 I think that shows that already the diet (and Metformin) is having an impact and I’d like to give it another few weeks. How should I approach it with the doctor? Should I negotiate with her? Accept the prescription but not take the medicine? Take the medicine in the hope I can come off it if my tests improve? Any guidance much appreciated!
