Hi. I had my original test (and I was dianosed as T2 from this) on May 30th which was 80/ 9.5 mmol .My GP told me I should then be tested after 3 months (which would be en dof August). I phoned the surgery to ask if I needed to book the blood test now and she said my GP told her that there was no need and to call at the end of December to book a test. Is this usual? They said the first test would be 3 months on the DESMOND course too. I'm a bit confused, but would like to see if I have lowered my HbA1C levels and also to begin reducing my Metformin dosage (I'm on the maximum dose per day) if possible.
