Talk about putting a damper on my Christmas fare! Yesterday I received a letter from our local GP surgery, asking me to make an appointment to have my blood sugar tested, since they have told me I have impaired Fasting Glycaemia! This is a pre-diabetic condition. I must have my blood tested annually to see if I have developed diabetes.
Following this they made recommendations about what I should be eating, less sugary food, less fat and take more exercise. Couldn't they have left this until after Christmas? I don't intend to make a pig of myself, but we all enjoy chocolates, Christmas pudding and mince pie etc.
I'll wait until the New Year to make the appointment, but suspect all my levels will be higher than usual because of the time of year. At least they are keeping an eye on me, for which I should be grateful.
