Our expert says:
I must say that I am appalled that you have not been given more detailed information about how to test for your blood sugar levels and what diet to use for your diabetes. For your own sake Please consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), because it is vital that you are given a diet prescription based on low-fat, low-GI foods. Also go back to where you purchased the glucometer (presumably a chemist??) and ask the pharmacist to explain in detail how this machine works and how you are supposed to judge what the results mean.
The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal
