Monitoring your blood sugar level is an important part of controlling your diabetes. Work closely with your diabetes care team to make sure you’re able to self-manage as best you can.
Remember to keep your meter and supplies with you at all times.
Check expiration dates as needed.
Track your numbers in a log or diary using an app or even pen and paper.
