Blood pressure and lipids (such as cholesterol and triglycerides) may also be monitored frequently by your healthcare provider (HCP).₂

血糖测试

What is 血糖测试?

A blood sugar (or blood glucose) test tells you how much sugar is in your blood at the moment it is tested. One way to find out the amount of sugar in your blood is to get a blood test in a doctor’s office. Another way to find out is to test it yourself. This is called self-monitoring or self-testing. Many factors affect your blood sugar levels every day. Testing your blood sugar may indicate if your meal plan, 药物治疗, and physical activity levels are working to help you manage your diabetes.

Who Should Test Their Own Blood Sugar?

血糖测试 is important for everyone with diabetes. People living with diabetes can learn how to test their own blood sugar using a blood glucose monitoring system.

How Can Blood Sugar Self-Testing Help You?

When you self-test regularly, you may learn what makes your blood sugar too high or too low. With the help of your healthcare team, you can make adjustments to your meal plan, 药物, and physical activity levels that will help you better control your diabetes. When you keep your blood sugar in a normal range, you lower your risk of developing problems with your heart, 眼睛, 肾脏, 大脑, 脚, and nerves that can occur because of diabetes.₃

Improving blood sugar self-testing

What Can You Do to Improve Your Self-Testing?

Talk to your healthcare team about your meter and how to test. Always follow the directions that come with your meter. An important thing you can do to ensure a good self-test is to properly wash and dry your hands right before the test, as explained in the user manual. If your hands are not completely clean, this can cause an incorrect blood sugar reading. Before doing the test, wash your hands in warm, soapy water and dry them well. DO NOT use alcohol-based hand sanitizers, gels or wipes in replacement of soap and water.

More Tips to Improve Your Self-Testing Practices:

  • 保持仪表清洁
  • Keep your testing supplies at room temperature
  • Check the expiration date of your testing supplies. Make sure your meter is correctly coded to the test strips you are using. CONTOUR®NEXT portfolio meters offer No Coding® technology to reduce the steps in the testing process and help you get easy, highly accurate results₄,₅
  • Put your hand down to let gravity help the blood flow to your fingertips
  • Stick the side of your finger with a new lancet in a lancing device
  • Get enough of a blood drop to apply to the test strip. CONTOUR®NEXT portfolio meters offer Second-Chance® sampling, allowing you to apply more blood onto the same test strip which may help prevent wasted test strips₆
  • Record the results in your logbook or smart device app

Managing your blood sugar

健康营养

The 美国糖尿病 协会(ADA) recommends nutrition therapy for all people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Consult with your healthcare team to find a Registered Dietician Nutritionist (RDN - an expert in nutrition) or other qualified HCP, who can personalize your meal plan to fit your individual needs. Within the first 6 months of your diabetes diagnosis, you should meet with your RDN 3 to 4 times. Don’t hesitate to ask for help with your meal plan. Many health insurance plans cover nutrition and diabetes education sessions.₈

健康的活动

Exercise is an important part of the diabetes management plan. Regular exercise has been shown to improve blood glucose control, reduce cardiovascular risk factors (blood pressure and cholesterol), contribute to weight loss, and improve well-being (reduce stress and increase energy levels).₉ Always talk with your healthcare provider before starting any exercise program.
