Fasting value of 6.9 is abnormal. Test PPBS and Hba1c also.

That could have skewed the results; there is carbohydrate in the milk that would have been digested to glucose in the body.

Was a reason for your B12 deficiency known?

Eating healthy may help your blood pressure and blood glucose normalise. Most people use between 400 and 600 kcal of carbohydrate per day. This is best obtained by having approximately 40g low Gi carbohydrates each meal; primarily vegetables.

Have a palm-size or slightly less, of natural protein at each meal too. The balance of your meals should be comprised of natural fat.

No reason for the b12 defeicency just put me on injections, they don't seem to bother doctors about it, they didn't do anything to find out why,

Hi, you need to have an HBA1C blood test. This shows what your blood sugars have been like over the past three months rather than just a one off result. Dr Webberley
