Is there a similar incentive for type 2 diabetes?
I have regular blood tests to monitor my Hypertension and Heart and in the last couple my Blood Sugar levels have been slightly elevated but as you can see from the Fitness thread I've been dropping weight slowly and consistently overthe past 6 months and exercising more so when I had the last set the GP suggested we'd probably see that going down next time.
Yesterday I got a call on behalf of the Nurse Practitioner booking me in for 20 minutes to tak to me about my Type 2 Diabetes and to refer me for retinal scanning. I suggested she have a conversation with the GP as he didn't seem to thk there was a problem. Short answer, one of them will call back in a week after the Nurse gets back from leave and will discuss it with me further. Mrs Shadow suggested it was a money earner for the practice, the cynic in me agrees but thinks it may be a presentational issue.
