The benefits of blood glucose monitoring

type 2 diabetes

Making a routine out of blood glucose testing can be really helpful. Not only can you see how your glucose level is at the moment you test but you can also build up a picture of your glucose trends over time. This knowledge can be empowering – you can work out if your medication is working, what effect the foods you are eating are having and how exercise and stress play a role. Monitoring can help you prevent instances of glucose being too high or too low. If you think you are already out of range, checking with a meter can confirm this immediately.

Your health matters. Make sure you're using a quality blood glucose meter.
