    HbA1c = 42 mmol/mol

    or 6% in old numbers... [​IMG] apparently my blood sugars are in the 'normal' range which is excellent according to my specialist nurse...

    however, they really have a downer on my cholesterol level and are blaming my low carb high fat diet... they want me on statins... have an appointment for the 'talk' next week with the doctor... I will have the appointment and yet again explain why I refuse to take statins any more... I'm convinced that some 15 years of taking them made me diabetic... plus I never liked being on them as I seemed to be not quite here and I had pain and muscle cramps...

    Don't know what the truth is but try discussing this with your doctor and see what sort of response you get.
