Blood Glucose Monitoring

As you develop strategies to help you cope with diabetes, you will find that monitoring your own blood glucose levels is a valuable management tool.


Measuring and recording your blood glucose levels is important because it reflects how your body is responding to changes in eating patterns, physical activity, medicines and other factors.


Importantly, a change in the pattern can alert you and your health care team to a need to alter your diabetes management plan and medication if necessary.
