What is blood glucose monitoring?

Blood glucose monitoring is a wonderful tool that will allow you to learn more about your diabetes and your body.

Blood glucose values are like pieces to a puzzle. The more pieces of the puzzle you have, the clearer the big picture will be.

Blood glucose monitoring provides data for you and your healthcare team to:

  • Identify trends in glucose control
  • Identify factors that may cause high or low glucose values
  • Evaluate the impact of food, activity or medications on your diabetes
  • Identify where changes in the treatment plan are needed
  • Decide what you need to do when you are sick
  • Confirm whether or not the feelings you have are the result of a low or high blood glucose, or if it is something unrelated to your diabetes.
