Hi. I have just been diagnosed as being diabetic. I am not surprised since both my mum and dad were diabetics and my mum was insulin dependant.
I had my last blood test last week, or so I thought, but the lab did not process my blood for the final result, so today I am having the last blood test. What I want to know is, what will happen next? Will I get a diabetic check kit to test my own sugar levels? I will be put on medication because I have had a very big lifestyle change this year. Meals being cooked for me. I get plenty of exercise. My husband is paralysed. We walk everywhere, so it is not a question of more exercise. I had a sweet tooth but do not eat sweets now, so what am I to expect? Thank you.
