Have you ever heard someone say that they know how their blood sugar is doing based on how they feel? It’s true, our body does send us some “warning signals” if our blood sugar is getting too low or too high, but we don’t really know what that number is unless we check it. Checking blood sugars regularly can help you find patterns that either tell you you’re doing well or perhaps need some changes in therapy.
