Make the most of your appointment
It’s a good idea to review your blood glucose levels before you come to see Jayne if you have a blood glucose meter. Check your levels before and 2 hours after each meal and before bed for three days in a row. It might sound like a lot doing seven finger-pricks for three days, but the information you gather will help you to make the most of your appointment.
We will work out how often you need to keep monitoring at our appointment. If all is going well and you aren’t on insulin or a sulphonylurea tablet there’s a chance you will be able to have a break from monitoring for a bit. It’s all about being smart with the way you get your information and not checking your levels for the sake of it!
