I went for my second appt. with my team the other day and the intake nurse took my b/s and a1c right then and there. It was 2 in the afternoon. I was under the impression these tests are supposed to be done only in the morning before a meal or after a fasting period. When I asked her about it, she said she believed the same but was just "following dr's orders" and that they do it with every patient, regardless of time of day.
I don't mind the test; I just want to understand what the proper procedure is. I am trying to learn everything I can about being type 1. Can anyone shed some light on this please?
