Regular checks for diabetes
If you've had high blood glucose after an acute coronary syndrome and you don't have a diagnosis of diabetes, your GP should offer you blood tests for diabetes (HbA1c and fasting blood glucose) at least once a year. You should also go to your GP if you start to pass urine more frequently, you're suddenly very thirsty, you lose weight unexpectedly or you're unusually tired. These can all be symptoms of diabetes.
