So long story short, in the UK unless you’re high risk for diabetes you don’t get tested. I wasn’t high risk but I am now as a sibling of mine has just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes The docs have said it’s too late for the glucose test so they want me to monitor my bloods daily and report back in 1 week. I have to do it before eating first thing, then after each meal - I started today and so far all looks good! The maximum it can be one hour after meals is 7.8 and the highest I’ve had is 7.5 which dropped to 5.4 after 2 hours. BUT... As soon as I found out about my sibling, I freaked and changed my diet to that of a diabetic (as close as possible) just in case, and I’m still doing that so I’m worried that I’m “tricking” my bloods into thinking I am OK when maybe I have it? Should I be eating high sugar and carbs and then testing to see how it works? My diet was becoming very unhealthy before this so I don’t necessarily want to go back to that but I don’t want to be on a diabetes type diet either and I’m worried if I was to just eat normally like I was before pizza, white pasta, ice cream etc then maybe my results wouldn’t be within the normal range? Can you normally control GD 100% to within the normal range without meds... or am I worrying about nothing? Help!
