I don't know. When I last had it checked at the local surgery ,it wasn't too bad
I don't know what HgbAlc means.
I pass small amounts of urine several times a night.
I don't urinate as much during the day.
I don't have shortness of breath or swelling of the legs.
My water tablets are Furosimide. I have stopped taken them since they seemed to make things worse.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Regards
Joe McMahon.
I gave you my phone number but still haven't heard from you and I don't quite know how to use your contact number

I am sorry for the delay. I got a message that said that you wanted to talk by phone and to enter my contact information, and I accepted that it would be fine and entered my contact information. I am in the US, and the contact information is my area code code and phone number.

I am sorry for the confusion. I was not in a position to make an international call yesterday, but I can now do so. If you would like me to call you, please let me know when you would be ready for the call.
