A critical part of taking charge of your diabetes journey is learning how to measure your own blood glucose levels. The accuracy of your measurement is impacted by your meter and how you use it to take readings. Therefore, it’s important to work with your healthcare professional to ensure you understand the proper steps needed to accurately measure your blood glucose levels from the beginning. You should also review your technique and readings with your healthcare professional regularly, to ensure you are taking accurate readings and that changes to your care can be made quickly and effectively based on your blood glucose levels.1
