Tracking Your Insulin Levels When you Have Type 2 Diabetes

By Matthew Walker

Do you realize when you have type 2 diabetes measuring your own blood glucose levels is a good way to learn how your body reacts to the foodstuffs you eat and the exercise you do! No book and no medical care supplier can tell you how your body is going to react to your diabetes plan...only by you testing, as frequently as you can, will show you your own physiology!

Now one of the finest things you can do for your diabetes is to get a blood glucose meter. There are several categories of meters with refined differences. It's irrelevant which blood glucose meter you buy...buy a simple one and use it! Take a look at the cost of the strips as this can be where you'll be spending money in the future.

Some aspects of testing are very much the same regardless of which meter you purchase. You simply know there will be an 'ouch ' moment when you puncture your skin. And yes it does hurt.

And they come in different gauges, a higher number indicating a thinner tip. This is sweet to know sincehe sharper and thinner the point of the lancet the less painful it is to prick your skin! But if the lancet is too fine you might find it too difficult to get sufficient blood for your test. And not all lancets fit with all lancing devices.

Frequently employing the same lancet ends in larger discomfort as the blade dulls and hygiene can also become an issue. It is always crucial to clean your hands with water and soap before testing.
