    Can someone please remind me, at what level MMOL from HbA1c test are you considered to be type2 diabetic, had a test done last week came back as 42 mmol (was 62 this time last year so work in progress still but heading the right way, yipee) but confused with the notes next to the result?

    48mmol/mol or above is the diagnostic criteria for type 2. 42mmol/mol is considered prediabetic.

    Good work on the reduction :smug:

    There is such a strong expectation that type two is progressive - because it was so often the way to a dreadful end of life - I saw my grandmother dying bit by bit, provided with cups of tea with three sugars - crates of soft drinks, a dozen two pint bottles every couple of days, simply because no one knew how she should be eating or drinking.

    How lucky, newly diagnosed T2 or pre-diabetic patients are arriving here to see what they can do to change their live around before it deteriorates under a progressive onslaught of drugs.

    Couldn't agree with you more, if it hadn't have been for the knowledge i gained by discovering this site and the forums think my numbers would still be rising, if it hadn't been for the fantastic members sharing ideas expirience and what they know id still be sitting here scratching my head.

    I can't help wondering Chris, how many people, just here in the UK, have T2 without being aware of it at all.

    I would think that the numbers of children are growing year on year.

    To be candid, Chris, many of those notes or messages are system generated in response to the result returned.

    Well done on the result.

    Thank you, would still prefer it lower but at least the level is going the right way which is very encouraging.
