How should I keep track of my blood sugar if I have diabetes?

ANSWER

Keep a record of your blood sugar readings. You can write them down in a notebook, track them in an app, or rely on the memory feature of your glucose monitor. They’ll help you see trends and spot any problems. They’ll help your doctor, too, so bring them with you to your next appointment.
