Re: [IP] Re: Testing

My son also uses the FasTake, he loves it (if an 8 year old can like testing
their blood sugars).  I was also wondering how often people are checking
their blood sugars, pumpers and non-pumpers alike.  When Taylor was released
from the hospital he was told to check his blood sugars 4 times a day.  If
only it were that easy!!!  He checks them at least 6-10 times a day.  In
fact I went to the pharmacy to pick up test strips (thankfully they are
covered by insurance)  the pharmacist asked how often he was checking, and
when I told him he looked at me in amazement.  Our theory with Taylor is
when in doubt check your blood sugar (in addition to the 4 times he should
do it any way), and he has always been right on when he checks them.
