Monitoring Your Blood Sugar Levels When You Have Type 2 Diabetes

By Matthew Walker

Do you realise when you have type 2 diabetes measuring your own blood levels of glucose sugar is a great way to find out how your body responds to the foods you eat and the exercise you do! No book and no medicare provider can tell you how your body is going to respond to your diabetes plan...only by you testing, as often as you can, will show you your own physiology!

Now one of the best things you can do for your diabetes is to get yourself a blood glucose meter. There are different kinds of meters with subtle differences. It doesn't matter which blood glucose meter you buy...buy a straightforward one and use it! Check out the value of the strips as this could be where you will be spending cash in the future.

Are you continuing to there? The very idea of pricking yourself could be enough to make you leave!

Some facets of testing are rather the same whichever meter you buy. You just know there'll be an 'ouch ' moment when you puncture your skin. And yes it does hurt. After 1 or 2 days you'll find you stop sweating about this. In the beginning it is more the anticipation that injures the most.

Hey, there is good news Current technological advances are concentrated on making the finger prick far less agonizing.

Just as blood glucose monitors are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, so are there a variety of lancing devices and lancets. 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.

Regularly utilizing the same lancet leads to bigger pain as the blade dulls and cleanliness can also become a difficulty. It is always important to scrub your hands with soapy water before testing.

Disposing of your needles:

they should not be placed in your usual trash

you might put them in a heavy duty screw-top plastic bottle and then check with your local council, Diabetic Association or surgery how to lose them.

your local chemist or Diabetic Association will have specially chosen sharps containers for diabetic needle disposal.

It is also possible to get blood from sites apart from your fingertips. Some monitors come with attachments to permit this alternate site testing though has revealed to be less correct.
