Poor me - he should be eating LESS SUGAR.
And his means less rfined rubish also - cakes, swets, fizzt drinks, prepackaged food, tinned foods and (if he\'s old enough) alcoholic drinks.

Sue, aside from diabetes, this Sue, this could well be because you're dehydrated also being overeight won't help your tirednes.
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.

Thirsty, dizzy and tired at the moment. Are these signs of diabetes? Overweight as well and haven't had much exercise lately due to knee injury.

My 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.

Having 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.
