New here so hello
About 2 weeks ago my Dad has a bit of a health scare and was hospitalised for about 5 Days. He's diabetic and it turned out he was not self medicating correctly as his Nurse changed the Insulin pen and he was not getting the right amount of insulin.
I know I'm a prime candidate in becoming diabetic but dad made a comment on my weight so it got me thinking, Now I'm not the type of person just to say "I'm off to the GP" as our services are stretched so I thought I'd do some basic checks on my self.
I bought some scales and weighed myself and I'm 121kg so yes I'm obese so time to do something about that. Anyway also purchased a GlucoRx Nexus Blood Sugar monitor here are my last 4 readings.:
28th Jan 2018 14: 18 Random Test - Result:8mmol
28th Jan 2018 18: 33 2 Hours after eating- Result:6.7mmol
29th Jan 2018 07: 58 2 Fasting Test- Result:6mmol
29th Jan 2018 14:38 2 hrs after eating- Result:8.5mmol
Are the 8mmol and 8.5mmol cause for concern? Find it strange they are at those levels at roughly the same time. Should I keep doing the Blood Glucose tests for another fews days or should I just book a GP appointment.
