There I was awake and up at 4am and longing for a cup of coffee, but I needed to get a blood test for the A1C thingie. So being good I made do with a glass of water (definitely does not substitute for the first coffee of the day). Then I began to shake and feel dizzy. My bsg was 3.6! Munching on glucose tablets I decided I was wasting my time but stuck it out with no coffee and no breakfast. But no, the dr. could not do the blood test so I have an appointment for next week.
How do you guys manage this fasting blood test thing? One good thing, the dr. has reduced my metformin dose.
