Staying on track with blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, and weight
Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) has transformed diabetes self-management. You can know your glucose levels by performing a simple blood test, practically anywhere. SMBG reduces diabetes complications! Most insurance companies cover the testing supplies, providing you have a doctor's prescription. If you are interested in learning how to test your glucose, see your diabetes nurse educator.
The other components of monitoring involve blood pressure and lipids (cholesterol) levels. These two very important elements of diabetes management are often overlooked.
