Quick note before I start: I got this wonderful piece of art from Melissa Arandia’s art blog. View the post here.
My next proverb in diabetes language:
A penny saved is a penny earned.
Testing more often is a high avoided.
Ha! It’s actually somewhat lyrical! I’ve always liked poetry, but I like free verse because I can’t rhyme.
So, to the meaning part. I know it’s sort of self explanatory, but oh well, because I’m going to explain it anyway.
Test your blood sugar more often! I should take my own advise, since I’m not perfect. For example, I’ll feel fine so I’ll skip testing for lunch. Don’t do this. You might end up having perfect numbers, but when you look at the records, your doctor might have been able to take something out of that one number and it could help adjusting basals or something else.
Bottom Line: Test even when you don’t think you need to. (Though I don’t mean to test when you are fine, just test before meals.)
