Meaningful Monitoring - Checking your blood glucose with purpose
You’ll see the difference with before-and-after testing.
Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for some time, it is important to manage your blood glucose. Monitoring your blood glucose (or sugar) levels performs an important role in helping you understand what is happening on a day-to-day basis.
Remember that one blood glucose value from a check does not tell you the whole story! When you consistently check at the right time and frequently enough in a structured manner, blood glucose patterns emerge. This can give you a better understanding of the fluctuations in your blood glucose, which are linked to your daily habits.
Accu-Chek® Testing in Pairs is a simple paper tool designed to help you see changes in your blood glucose before and
after a specific meal, exercise, or other event. Use it to discover how one thing in your daily routine can
affect your blood glucose.
What could you learn?
• Does what and how much I eat make a difference in my result?
• Does activity/exercise affect my blood glucose?
• Does packing my lunch instead of eating out affect my blood glucose?
