Have you mastered use of your glucose meter? If not, keep practicing! At a minimum, you should check your blood glucose at least once a day–or more–unless you have been at 5.0% (or lower) A1C for at least 6 months. Anyone with an A1C over 5.1% or a daily average blood glucose over 100 mg/dL or 6.0 mmol/l should be using their glucose meter on a regular basis! You should use your glucose meter to test new foods and recipes to see how they affect your blood sugar. (We’ll talk more about “Eating to Your Meter” in another blog post.)
Have you stopped drinking all sugary drinks and juices (of all kinds)? If not, take time this week to replace all juices and sugary drinks, especially sodas, with an equal amount of plain, pure water (Law of Health #3).
How much water do you drink a day? How much do you think you should drink? Does it matter what time of day you drink water? Warm water? Hot water? Cool water? Ice water? Read the articles linked to in the previous paragraph, and see if you can discover the answers for yourself!
