Are you type one or type two diabetic?

If type one....on insulin?

If type two on tablets or diet control?

I am a Practice nurse here on holiday for few weeks. 

If your sugars have become raised then it could be to do with the possibility that your diet/intake has changed or increased. Are you Well? Sugars can become raised if you have a infection in the system somewhere. Diarrhoea doesn't help either.

There are a lot of probabilities so would need to know more.

I know as a Practice nurse that the GP  may pass patient's such as yourself to a Practice nurse at the surgery as they are the ones dealing with diabetics in their clinics.

You could try ringing your surgery again and ask to speak to the nurse who deals with diabetic clinic/reviews there.

Hope this helps.

You know you can access where you can arrange to speak to someone too. Seems a shame that you may have to fork out for flights when it could be sorted out over the phone. Good luck. I hope things settle down and blood sugars settle. 

If you had your HbA1c checked before you left UK then it's likely a change in diet or even your monitor is playing up. 

Again, I wish you good luck.
