Consistently testing and tracking the blood sugar levels you and your doctor have agreed on can tell you how well your type 2 diabetes plan is working.
You and your doctor will likely have target levels that are best suited for you.
Checking your blood sugar levels is important, but keeping track of them in a written logbook or software will help you spot trends of blood sugar levels that are too high or too low. If you see a trend like this, be sure to discuss it with your doctor. Keep in mind that if you have recently started a new type 2 diabetes therapy, it may take some time to see the results you expect. Be sure to discuss with your doctor how long it should take before you see an improvement in your blood sugar levels.
