Currently I test 5 times aday. First thing in the morning, 3 tests 2hours after each meal and then last thing at night. However I was reading another topic where someone was testing just before each meal. So, trying to keep testing down to a minimum, when are the best times to test? I hadn't been testing for a long time and now I've started again, I don't want my doctor to notice my increase in test strip usage and cut the quantity I get. Although I've been ok so far.
