  • I hate having blood tests and I've had quite a few over the last 18 months since being diagnosed with anxiety. My very doc told me that GPs are encourage to test for glucose levels because the raised level can indicate a possibility of developing diabetes later. (Cue for me to go into anxiety panic mode!) But he assured me that it would be far easier to control if picked up at this very early stage. As it happened, further tests just indicated I was a borderline case so I was let off with a warning just to watch my weight and not to eat too much starchy food etc.

    Try to see it as a preventative check, a precaution, to head off possible problems before they develop.
