Sorry but I disagree. I had no training. It states on the website what the bs range for non diabetics and diabetics is. All you need to do is read it. The info I got about diabetes was from this forum and from a poster who referred me to diet doc. I think that everyone who wants to have the opportunity to test should have that option. It would appear that many practices take the line that diabetics wouldn't understand the readings, become too obsessive about testing, aren't interested. People must be given a chance.
