because I am on both Glipazide and metformin my doctor has me testing in the morning prior to breakfast (metformin controls the pancres output of insulin) and right before dinner (the Glipazide controls the carbs I eat during the day) Twice a week I test 2 hours after dinner to see how the Glipazide is performing.

That was my thought as well -- it seemed like it'd be the most natural number (pre-food, pre-meds) :-)

If testing once a day, I think most folks would test first thing in the morning before eating anything.

Hi all:

Quick question -- my doctor has asked me to start testing my glucose daily but didn't mention WHEN (I have a call in to her but thought I'd ask for opinions here). If only testing once a day, is there a time that is best to do it? Fasting test in the morning? At the end of the day?

Thanks!
