Re: Monitoring blood sugar

I test around 4 times a day and anytime I feel bad. When I first wake up and then 2 hrs after a meal. I also make sure to eat 2 snacks a day, so I can keep my levels even. I alternate hands, I find that pinky/ring fingers are the least sensitive for me. Make sure to get the side of your fingers, not the pads-otherwise you will be sore. Have it on the lowest setting that you can get an easy draw from and don't press too hard. It gets easier after a bit.
