    i had 3 samples taken at the docs and i came out a little confused, all three came back good, one was for thyroid and another for colesterol, the other she didnt explain as we got cut short, it was glucose count in blood, is this for diabetes? as i was concerned with this as all the family have it and how accurate is the test

    Sounds like diabetes mate, did the test come back with a number ? 5.1 or some such

    If she just said normal, then that is all you need to be concerned about. They know what they are looking for and what results should be. Chill, all is well!

    My brothers and my mum all have it and i'm the last one in the family without it,i'm the youngest so assume it's coming but have lost weight and get regular checks,pee on a stick is still a way to spot it but as you were having a blood test it's included in that anyway

    Ask them for a print out.

    I get one every time I have a blood test.
