Timing is Everything

It is important to know when to test your blood sugar. You want to, at the end of the day, see how well the insulin being put into your body is working to help process glucose. While your doctor will tell you exactly how often and when to test your blood glucose levels, here is an idea of times that may be suggested to you:

  • before a meal
  • 1-2 hours after a meal
  • in the middle of the night
  • during physical activity
  • after physical activity
  • when sick
  • while stressed

Remember, your doctor knows best for your specific situation. They are one of your predominant allies while working to BEAT DIABETES!
