Hi

I was having a few problems. some blurry vision, feeling tired, problems with my feet a kind of burning feeling in them. My mom is diabetic so I asked her if I could test myself on her meter. My reading came out 189. Is that cause to be concerned? I went to my family doctor a few months ago and he said that all my blood work came out normal. But I havent been feeling right lately.

thanks

I would definitely make an appointment with a doctor. Can I ask how old you are? Are you overweight? I had some vision problems, too, that I couldn't explain and I slept A LOT. I think you need to be retested by your doctor. Lots can change in a few months.

Hi Bonbon45,

welcome here! I hope you will go check your blood again. It's always better to know for sure. Especially if there's diabetes in your family.

Good luck!
