Should I keep record of my blood sugar readings if I have diabetes?

ANSWER

Keep records of all your test results. Most glucose monitors also have memory designed to do that for you. Your records can alert you to any problems or trends.

These test records also help your doctor make any needed changes in your meal plan, medicine, or exercise program. Bring these records with you to every checkup.
