As well as seeig your GP fo the test, weightloss and fitness should be your first priority. You can exercise is siuch a way that it won't affect your knee.

Anonymous · 08 Sep 2005My local chemist now dos this. It's brilliant. You just have to sigh a form and you get the readoutoin two minutes.
My Mum got it done, just at the pharmacists suggrestion and her level is 4.7. She was very pleased.
Now he reminds her about it every 6 months.

Willie (QQT33784) · 07 Sep 2005Having an A1c test is very important. I have adult onset diabetes. I have a huge advantage in that the Nurse with my doctor specialises in Diabetes and reminds me to get my A1c blood test every three months - as well as regular checkups.
