Some Ever So Slightly Good News.
In 2008 I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. No medication was prescribed. Three weeks ago I went for my biannual check up. Today I got a call from the practice nurse at my local surgery. She had taken the trouble to review all my results over the past 8 years. She told me that these showed that I was NOT diabetic; I was misdiagnosed as the diagnosis was on the basis of a non-fasting blood test instead of a fasting one. So, no more six-monthly trips to the clinic; the only thing I'll miss is the bit where the nurse gets to tickle my feet!
To be quite honest it has never really bothered me. I have not been inconvenienced, apart from having my blood tested 4 times a day when I have been in hospital. I can't even sue because I have suffered no loss or damage. What is worrying, though, is that if my condition had been otherwise and I was misdiagnosed, what would the consequences have been. We place ultimate faith in our doctors to get it right.
Sorry, keyboard got over ex..... damned, keys keep sticking.//
Reading your first post it begs the question as to how your keyboard is sticky ????
Fantastic News JD. I really am pleased for you. A great relief. I was misdiagnosed with COPD several years ago by the 'stop smoking nurse'
Turns out I have very strong efficient lungs for my age according to the many pre-op assessments I have had over the last few years in the Respiratory Function units. :-)
