    Hi @Prettypinkpetals and welcome to the forum. Try not to stress about your bs levels, that will probably raise them.
    It is a shock when you get that diagnosis and takes time to get your head around it all, but you can control your condition. There is a lot of useful advice and support on here.

    I wonder how many times Nursey has seen a blood sample with a head on it?

    Had my HbA1c result - this was 7 (which they tell me has come down which is good).

    What levels should I be looking at aiming for? I'm so confused!

    @Nicksu Above 7.7 is in the diabetic range. 7.0-7.7 is in the pre-diabetic range. Below 7.0 is non-diabetic.
    Well done on getting down to pre-diabetic level, you should be able to get down further into the non-diabetic range now.
    This is a chart which shows the bs range:

    Thank you for that - it makes me feel a bit better - still room for improvement (plus further weight loss!). LCHF is so the way to go.
