  • you have to go to the bathroom more frequently
  • you feel the need to go with urgency

  • you feel you need more to drink more frequently than you used to drink.

    Diabetic Blood Sugar Tests

    The HbA1c blood test.



    When you have diabetes, your HbA1c level should be tested quiet regularly at least every 6 months by your doctor or nurse. This test measures your recent average blood sugar (glucose) level over about the last 3 months.

  • Because it is an average measurement over a period of time you do not need to fast on the day of the test. This test measures a part of the red blood cells over a period. Glucose in the blood attaches to part of the red blood cells.
  • This part can be measured and gives an accurate good indication of your average blood glucose over the previous 3 months.Diabetes develops very gradually over a long time, so when you’re in the pre-diabetes stage,this is when your blood glucose level has risen to a level that is higher than normal you may not have any symptoms that indicate your sugar level is beyond the normal level at all.


    Every person over 40 should have a simple annual Well Person Medical Check.

  • This check can identify very early stages not only for diabetes but other life threatening conditions that when treated early can save your life.
  • For men over 40 a prostate check is another life saver,and for many women these simple tests can spot many diseases and get treatment early so help you live a long and healthy life.
  • Don't think it can't happen to you. Sh-t does happen, make sure it doesn't happen to you.

  • T2diabetes does not develop into full blown type 2 diabetes overnight it takes years to develop. If your blood sugar levels are diagnosed higher than the normal levels early enough you are pre-diabetic. Lucky to be given a second chance to take action to reduce the sugar in their diet, so that T2diabetes does not develop into full blown type 2 diabetes.
