I picked up a LIDL curry for £1.49 today. It wasn't bad really. Now fasting for a blood test tomorrow. Water only from 8:30 this evening. Joy.

Poor you, Jason. Hope the blood test isn't for anything serious.

I'm sure all this fasting is just a ploy... I remember fasting the night before an op, got to the hospital and waited and waited, only to be told the operation wasn't supposed to be until the next day. So I had a late lunch and tea and fasted that evening. Next day at about 10:30, the surgeon arrived to say they couldn't operate as I needed a different type of surgery (keyhole) for which the surgeon was in a different hospital... :crying-green:

This probably is a silly question, but what is curry exactly? Cause for me it means the spice, like you can have chicken with curry, or rice with curry, but now that Jason mentions it, this wasn't the first time that somebody is eating a curry, and I expect you didn't just had some of the yellow powder... :?:

Hope your bloodtest goes fine tomorrow, Jason!

Curry is a general term used by British for various spicy Indian meals. There is no "curry" spice, the flavour is a combination of such things as coriander, cumin, chilli, ginger and various other items. It's usually the chillii that gives the heat to the spice. :)

Thanks guys. My father was recently diagnosed as having type 2 diabeties, given that both his parents had type 2 diabeties and my younger brother also has type 2 diabeties I thought it advisable to have my blood sugars checked. So I went to the chemist after work and on the test got 6.2 (normal recommended value is 4 - 5.9) so I've been asked to go back this morning and try again but without having eaten for 12 hours.

Depending on what values I get today will decide if I can a) wait 3 years for another test, b) wait 18 months for another test or c) need to see my GP immediately.

I dunno, I have a jar of "Curry Powder" sitting in my spice rack right now. Goes good on burgers with oregano. :)

The powder is a mix (I thought spice could be used generally for things to season your food with ;) ), although my aunt used to have a curry-plant...smelled nice :lol:

Jason - my sympathies, I went through the same process...hopefully the results will be good!

So blood sugar was higher this morning (7) than last night (6.2) so I have booked an appointment to see my GP in a couple of weeks for more tests. Looks like I probably have type 2 Diabeties.
