I wonder if you can help me.
I have recently been told I need to take tablets for diabetes as my fasting blood count was 6.9 and my Doctor said 7 was considered diabetic (11 on a non fasting diet).
I have got a dietician to work out a eating plan for me as I have decided to try that as I am reluctant to take tablets. I have spoken to a few people who are diabetic and find that so many are vague about their readings, others about the fasting and non fasting readings.
I trust my Doctor but would like to know a bit more about sugar levels and also about fasting before a test and if one can drink water in this time.
