i have a friend/co-worker who is also a diabetic, and she tells me that she checks her blood sugar "once in a blue moon." she said that she picks a day and checks it all day to see where she's at and then she'll go "awhile." she does this because it "saves on her fingers." to all outward appearances she has her diabetes under control. but this concerns me. i test a minimum of 3 times a day because im on insulin and have to know how much to give before each meal. i just dont see how saving the pain on the fingers is a healthy reason to not test at least once a day. can anyone really have a good controlled idea of what their blood sugar is doing if they dont test frequently. she goes weeks without testing at all.
am i wrong to be worried about her?
