Testing...Testing...1, 2, 3 ( and even 4, 5, 6 )....Remember to test frequently...you can't tell where your BG is at by just guessing!...Test when you rise in the morning...before eating...before you drive...before you exercise...and any time you feel off.

You're right, Priya, however...testing once a day is being misinformed. Minimum should entail 2x a day...and perhaps not always in the a.m. and 2 hours after a meal. Say 3 days/week, test upon rising...the other times, 2 hours post prandial (after a meal)....but once in a while do a random test...say before a meal, or before bed, or at 3 a.m. (set your alarm for this one!!) However, there needs to be accountabilty in safe driving, so I would strongly suggest testing before driving....thus making it 2x daily testing.
