You could also look at getting a continuous glucose monitor
, which is a device that is inserted under your skin and tests your blood
sugar automatically every 5 minutes throughout the day, allowing you even better control over your diabetes. That's more expensive, but it is paying huge dividends for everyone I know using one. There are currently two models on the market that I know of, one by MiniMed and one by DexCom. Contact your endocrinologist to find out more information.
