This week is the time for my three month blood test. The difference being the Dr. ordered 3 days of blood tests - fasting. Need to vent, so ignore if you want to.

I had set up yesterday, today and tomorrow for the tests. Yesterday, after trying twice in both arms ended with no blood. This am the same. The nurse finally sent me to an outside lab. This resulted in left arm no go and then right hand - finally. So now, I still have to try again tomorrow and Friday - agrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I know my glucose levels has been rising (91, 112 & 122). Does anybody know, is this normal - having to do 3 fasts in a row?? I asked the nurse and she said sheeply sometimes.

I have been doing controlled carb for over a year. The part I haven't done is extensive exercises.
