Some people with Diabetes have to do blood glucose tests.
This test will tell if your blood glucose levels are:
Good, OK or Bad.
Your levels are an indication for you to decide what sort of food, drink and exercise you need to have.
Tick if you have blood tests
If you have to have blood tests, write in the clocks the times you have them
Tick which part of the blood glucose test you do by yourself
Your doctor will tell you what your blood glucose level should be.
'Low' blood glucose level may be because you have:
Missed Eating a Meal
Not Eaten Enough Carbohydrates
Had too much Medication or Insulin
'High' blood glucose level may be because you have:
Eaten too much Fatty or Sugary Food
Not Taken your Diabetes Medication or Insulin
Not Done Enough Exercise
or been sick.
If your blood glucose levels are low or high you need to tell somebody who can help you.
