I have been diagnosed by my GP with Type2 Diabetes I have purchased an Accu-Chek Aviva Glucose meter I have used it 3 times already and have a reading of 5.5 is this ok or do I need medication
Hi there,The reading of 5.5 is considered normal.As long as your reading does not exceed 7, you do not need any medication.High fiber diet and exercise should keep medications away :) MicrosoftInternetExplorer402DocumentNotSpecified7.8Normal0Best wishes, It was my pleasure to help you today.
