Diagnosis and Symptoms
Question from England:
I have type�1 diabetes and have noticed that my friend has started to show symptoms, so I checked her blood sugars which were 7.1 and 8 mmol/L [127 and 144 mg/dl]. Should I encourage her to see a doctor?
Yes. If she has symptoms she should see her doctor.
