I test my blood sugars often cuz I need to know, so I can feel at Peace or I can correct, if need be. Also because I was scared as a Kid by 2 old Ladies. Thank you 2 old Ladies. You've helped me more than you'll ever know. Thanks Ginger. Good Vlog! :)

I check my blood sugar because.........it gives me information that I wouldn't have known otherwise. I used to get stressed out and feel guilty whenever I'd check and be out of range, but now I check because I want to know where I'm at so I can make a decision - to take insulin or to eat carbs. I check my blood sugar for no other reason other than to eat or bolus. And because I'm checking more often and adjusting my food/insulin more frequently and monitoring more closely, my A1c drops and I feel better all around. I check because I'm human and not a magic all-knowing glucometer.
