Like " Florida54 My doctor told me I didn’t need to test. I decided on my own that I needed to test before and after I eat. At first I tested 2 hours after eating. When my blood sugars came down a lot, I started to test 1 hour after eating. I posted how I control my blood sugar here. http://kirla.wordpress.com/ My blood sugar was 300+ last year. Today they’re almost normal. Another site I recommend is http://loraldiabetes.blogspot.com/2006/10/test-review-adjust.html He gives excellent advice. I recommend you read as much as possible. Good luck Kevin "
