It is so important to test your BS to know where you stand thu out the day. Pre-eating, while exercising, before driving, bed time etc. Pick your strategy and TEST. Feel Funny...TEST.
I know test strips can get expensive and some insurances limit how many you can use each day. For those of you that have Medical Mutual Ins., they have a Health and Wellness group and SUPPLIES ARE FREE ! ! ! (test strips, lancets, swabs, recording books plus more)l
Here is the number...1-800-861-4826.

    If you have Med Mutual of Ohio, only some plans carry the diabletes advantage program...i had it and when i retired, still had med mut of ohio but a different plan and they did not cover supplies...so it depends on which plan you have

    I hear that all the time from my doc and the diabetes specialist I know my body and what low feels like and high sugar feels like. I do test but somedays I forget I have to be super vigil when I get sick like I have been for the past week and a half I tend to not do it because I have too much stuff going on. I do test I have to get better at doing it.

    can't stress how important this is as well - it's ALWAYS the first thing I think of when I feel just a bit off
