Q.

blood sugar tests

I' m type II diabetic. On my last visit to the dr she said my levels are to high and adjusted my meds.

I' m going back to her and would like to give her accurate readings on my bloodsugar levels. How many times per day should one test and how long after eating. I know about the fasting one but I' m not sure about the rest.

thanks.

In general the recommendation for a post-meal glucose is 2 hours after the start of your meal. There may be variations in individual patients. You can also test before the start of every meal and at bedtime.

My Dr said 2 hours after meals.
But my readings are so high lately I only take it first thing in mornings.
Bye
