You're welcome. And that is good news about Galvus. I'm glad to hear its working out for you with no side effects. The liver enzyme panel tests that checks for inflamation are ALT [Alanine Transaminase] and AST [Aspartate aminotransferase]. When the liver is ill it gets inflamed. I get both every other month.
Once again thankyou so much for your speedy very helpful response WaveRider.
I will see my Doc about a home test kit , Im sure he will write me a script for one.
Just a quick update on the new Galvus med I am taking, I have had no side effects at all so am very happy so far, I will post after my first blood test results regarding the liver function tests that are a must with this med,
Yes, there is a difference in the numbers. In The USA test results are presented in mg/dl [milligrams per deciliter]. In the UK test results are presented in mmol/l [millimoles per litre].
Here is a link to a blood sugar mg/dl to/from mmol/l converter http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/converter.htm
Here is an A1c chart referencing mg/dl vs mmol/l
Here are the fasting glucose ranges
Normal 70-99 mg/dl or 3.888-5.5 mmol/l
Prediabetes 100-125 mg/dl or 5.555-6.94 mmol/l
Diabetes 126 mg/dl and above or 7 mmol/l and above
Postprandial (after meal) 2-3 hours <180 mg/dl or <10 mmol/l
Some doctors want <140 mg/dl or <7.777 mmo/l
(< means less than)
You should try to get a home test kit. It is the only way you're going to know firsthand what each type of foods is doing to your glucose levels. Ask your doctor.
