    Hi all, My glucose reading this morning was 7.5. In January 2014 my A1c level was 50 mmol but by June this year 2019 it had raised to 59 mmol. I joined the forum and changed my diet to high protein/low carb. I also purchased a glucose monitor. I also have a kidney problem which is being investigated. The good news is that my last A1c result was now down a little to 55 mmol. A small step in the right direction.
    I have asked my diabetic Nurse to try to arrange for me to go on a 2 hour diabetic educational course, so I can learn more and ask as many questions as I like.
    The forum (all members) has already been of value and will continue to do so, I am sure - Thanks all
