It makes me wonder too. When I was recently prescribed Metformin, as nice as my GP is, that was it. He said see you in 2 months to test my HbA1c again to see if the medication has helped, as it went up to 113.
Any further advice etc I have had to seek for myself. Thank the Lord for the kind peeps on this forum. The dietitian was helpful yesterday, but slightly against different ways of which foods to eat or diets to try https://www.wubmed.org/blog/theramine-supplement-review/.
I don't know what reading my HBA1c is recorded in or how high 113 is. Sorry, digressing to something else now lol, I don't want to gatecrash your post.
I'm due for my diabetes check soon, checking my feet etc, so I'll soon see how it goes.
