    I have to take insulin 30 to 45 minutes before dinner and also test my BG before eating.
    Should I test my BG before injecting or just before eating or does it matter

    If I'm understanding your question correctly, you'd want to test first then take your meal-time insulin. If you did it after, it would kind of defeat the purpose of doing it in the first place.

    What type(s) of insulin are you on, and how much do you use and how often?
