Check, Think and Act resource – An innovative paper based resource that can be printed as a handout or laminated as an education resource that supports health professionals in their education of people with diabetes. People with diabetes use the number before the decimal place (full stop) on their meter to then find it on the appropriate number line (either before a meal or two hours after a meal) to identify if their blood glucose level is in the low (red) zone, healthy (green) zone or high (amber) zone. Underneath each zone is information to support people to positively act on their glucose levels to bring them back to target. You can use this resource in your own diabetes care and education. Go to the shop on this site to purchase the health professional version, including limited copyright agreement.
