Thanks for the comment I didn't see it until now Its very useful information. I think the initial A1c measurement was before the operation (though after the angiogram) and triggered by a high fasting bloood sugar measurement that I had done acidentaly along with a cholesterol measurement in a pharmacy. Since then I've been attempting to reduce the A1c with a Ketogenic diet (high fat / moderate protein/ very low carb) recently I lost part of a toe nail and the toe beneith was somewhat inflammed it's much better now after removing the part of the nail which had come away from the nail bed. I don't seem to have any loss of sensation (my feet hurt like every body elses) so I don't know if it's related to the blood sugar issue or not.
