Well, this week I had my annual diabetic MOT up at the Royal Infirmary. Sadly, for ghoulish readers, there’s nothing much to report. Everything is going fine, no limbs have rotted off, I can still see and hypo awareness is good. Even the goldfish in the fish-tank in the reception area were looking good – no fin rot, white eye or anything.
After the regulation armful of blood was taken by a very pleasant, chatty nurse and a bladder-full of pee donated (eugh!), I sat down in reception and read my book for a bit before being summoned by the Prof. for my annual review proper.
As expected, everything was fine with my HbA1C clocking in at a very satisfactory 6.7% (feel free to bathe in my munificent glory, you know you want to!) We had a brief discussion about a better way of avoiding hypos at the weekend (which tends to be a bad hypo time for me) and then the rest of session chatting about this and that, with me plugging my web site and the Prof. plugging his (www.hypodiab.com – a great resource if you want incredibly in-depth information about hypoglycemia).
So, all in all, a good time was had by all. This is how the annual MOT should be.
