In February I was attending a hospital appointment about my thyroid and the specialist said your blood sugar is a serious problem, when we’re you diagnosed? I was a little shocked as I hadn’t been.
I have eye issues and numb toes which GP put down to thyroid and sent me on my way. The specialist said it was all diabetes related & see GP to get medication, referral to a diet trial & eye checks.
The GP said rubbish, my result HbA1c 51 was mild and not possibly causing any symptoms. I was sent off with the advice “reduce carbs” & retest in a few months.
I’m very overweight but in 6 months I have lost 55lbs by reducing calories and eating less than 80g carbs per day.
After lots of failed bloods test attempts I was finally managed to get a repeat blood test done June and I was told normal, no further action my HbA1c is now 35. It also looks like my cholesterol has shot up according to the hospital, but the GP can’t view the recent result so won’t look into it.
I am wondering if the first result was false. Does the improvement sound plausible or is it more likely one of the tests is wrong?
