Hi, have just had a fasting test which came out at 5.9, never been high before, I have been told I need to speak to the practice nurse, as whilst this is not a diagnosis for diabetes, told it could lead there. I do like sweet things not the conventional choccy bars, I eat lots of full fat yoghurts with the fruit in the bottom as they say the low fat ones are full of sugar and I also have those innocent shop brought smoothies, so I expect it is this rather than a mars bar, which I do have occasionally. I do not want to go onto tablets and the note from the GP said to come in for a chat which I expect is to discuss how to get it down. I have googled and struggling to find that is a good level of sugar to look for as not all products have the traffic light system, is it less than 5% in 100 grams, also if you are meant to have 5 pieces of fruit per day what fruit is considered better for lower sugar, I love blueberries and bananas? I ask this because I thought cloudy apple juice was good but it has a whopping great 11% per 100gms. I am really struggling with how to get it down quickly if that is even possible. Any ideas appreciated.
