A blog written by a T-2 diabetic as an avenue to vent my frustrations with this disease. I use it to also communicate, and learn from other diabetics and maybe help some along the way!

How many times a day should a diabetic test his BSL?
How often should blood sugar levels be tested?
Monitoring blood sugar levels is needed to avoid hyperglycemic reactions and diabetic health complications. The number of times you need to check your blood sugar each day depends on the cause of your hyperglycemia (such as diabetes) and also your overall health. Your doctor can evaluate your needs and lifestyle to help you determine how often you should test your blood sugar levels. Many people with diabetes test themselves just a couple of times per day.
