I've had blurry vision for about a week or two now. I went to the optician and she said that she can't give me an eye test if my Diabetes isn't under controll. So she said for me to get a fasting blood test at my doctors as soon as possible and then come back to her in a couple of weeks time.

I got home and decided to take my Blood glucose level two hours after eating a cheese salad sandwich. The result was a reading of 26.5 mols! It should be no more than 10 mols 2 hours after a meal.

I may have to go to hospital. I'll see what my doctor says tomorrow.

Hi,
Sorry you have diabetes, me too. Hope you can get your blood glucose under control soon. Try to do some more monitoring before meals and 2 hours afterwards.
Lowering your carbs will really help, I know it's hard.
Ask to be referred to a diabetes specialist nurse from your GP. Hope your eyes will be okay.
Take care
