Oh well. My Diabetes was at level 7.5, so they are giving me 6 months to try by diet alone (yeah rite hehe hmy: :idea: :smilewinkgrin They checked my blood pressure 3 times which was high each time, i even had to stand once while she did the blood pressure check, the lowest reading was the last one at 155/99! Not ideal but still. So the nurse was asking me what i ate and such like and at the precise moment she asked me what spread i use on me bread.......you guessed it lol, me gp walked in at that very moment, and he started laughing and said, you were gonna say butter werent you hehe, so yes I was lol, how embarassing hehe. Anyways, the nurse has lent me a diabetic recepie book for a month, some good recepies in there ! Dunno how im gonna cope with the diet side of things as there arent many foods i like nowadays! I will eat strawberries and grapes, but do have plenty of veg! Im gonna get mesen one of those diabetes checker thingies lol to check me sugar levels and keep a record of what foods suit and which ones dont! So that was my interesting visit today, if its not come down in 6 months i will be classed as Type 2 Diabetic and have medication in tablet form, and if my blood pressure is stil high i will have medication for that too oh well. Youll be able to hear me coming wiv the tablets rattling in me hehe :001_tt2: hmy: :idea: :smilewinkgrin:. How does anyone else get on with diabetes?????? Or any tips????
