Re: [IP] to improve HbA1c

I don't remember how to test my basal rates.  Can someone help me with this
issue??  Also how do I go about ordering the continuous monitoring system?

I find the only way to really get good hbA1c scores is to test, test, test.
Ideally I test every two hours or more. I average 11 tests a day. My last
score was 5.8.  After going to the doctor and knowing I have three months
before the next test I slack off a bit and wow before you know it those high
scores come in. Then I get vigilant again.  I did order the continuous
glucose monitor. I wonder if it will make things easier.
Also as someone else said test your basel rate to make sure it is set to the
correct rate for you.
