    @andyolly - It's up to the individual how often they test blood sugars. Some people test several times a day, others maybe just once or twice a day. I ALWAYS test first thing on a morning and last before bed, and maybe through out the day if I feel my blood sugar may be dropping.:)

    I guess its up to me due to the fact as I refused to take meds my doctors will not prescribe strips. Hey so I buy them, this morning I record 5.3 so I feel I must be doing something right?

    Good Morning all! 5.7 at 0620 today.

    @andyolly 5.3 is good. Anything between 4-7 is good for a Type 2. From what I read 5.5 is the magic figure to aim for.
