Ok day 2 of stabbing myself with a blood glucose measuring machine trying to answer the question ‘Do I have diabetes?’.

The reason I am doing this is because I have a painful left foot which now has a numb heel and as a result everyone thinks I have diabetes’.

So far I believe my readings fall within the normal range. This morning I have a new all time low of 88 upon waking up. I am an early riser and am normally getting up around 4am which is why Pre Breakfast is so early.


Yesterday morning I had not set the date and time on my GL50 blood glucose meter and as such my Pre Breakfast reading is missing (it’s recorded as some time back in 2011), but it was a healthy 95. And I didn’t do my post lunch because I forgot.

I’m going to keep this up for a week and hopefully I will be in the clear. I am not enjoying this drawing blood process, my poor fingers are starting to hurt from all the stabbings.
