Master Use of Your Glucose Meter

As you may have noticed, Adventist Vegetarian Diabetics has a tagline: “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thess. 5:21). It’s another way of saying “eat to your meter.” However, you can’t “eat to your meter” unless you have and use a blood glucose meter. Mastering use of your glucose meter* is perhaps the one single most important habit you can establish!

Establish this essential habit by checking your blood glucose at least once a day up to six times or more if you are testing how a specific food or meal affects your blood glucose.

Review this article on “Mastering Use of Your Glucometer” and practice using your glucose meter. Every. Single. Day.

*A glucose meter (or glucometer) is a medical device for determining the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. A small drop of blood, obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet, is placed on a disposable test strip that the meter reads and uses to calculate the blood glucose level. The meter then displays the level in units of mg/dl or mmol/l. A glucose meter does NOT determine lactose intolerance, gluten sensitivity, or food allergies.
