Blood tests

I have an appointment with my GP in the morning.

I need to get blood tests to see where my A1C is right now.

Not sure if he’ll do a full blood panel, with all of the different tests for kidneys, liver, iron levels, B12 levels, etc. Or whether he’ll just do my glucose levels.

I have to fast from midnight tonight.

I tested my blood sugar a few minutes ago, and it was 14, which is high, but not very high.

I mean it’s definitely not where I want to be, I’d like my blood sugar to be 9 or 10.

I’m going to make sure I bring a bottle of water with me in the morning, so that when I’m done I can have a drink while I’m waiting for the taxi to pick me up and bring me back home.

Frances is going with me, so that is good.

I know I’ll be starving once I’ve finished, so I’ll be looking forward to eggs and toast for breakfast.

My appointment isn’t until 9:30 in the morning.

I hope they don’t have trouble getting a vein. My veins are awful, and most of the time the nurse has trouble actually getting one to take blood.

Fingers crossed tomorrow will be my lucky day!
