Like "Hi Everybody, I also see my doctor about every 3 months, so 4x/year. If you see a diabetes educator, you might want to go in more often. Also -- and this is really important -- there are 5 key tests you need to have done regularly in order to monitor your health: • the A1c blood test - every three months • blood pressure - every six months at least • microalbumin (urine test), lipids (blood test), and eye exam—all annually You need to make sure you get the lab slips to have these tests done on a regular basis -- the only way to know how you are doing with your health overall. Best, AmyT "
