      Welcome to the forum, when I was diagnosed 3yrs ago I didn't test them at all and I thought I was doing really well felt ok, no problems, then I got an infection that wouldn't heal. So I did a test and it was way to high, now I test every morning. I've got into the habit of testing as soon as I get up, It's up to you how often you test but I would test at least once a month. Stay healthy Paul..
