Re: [IPk] Re: ip-uk-digest V3 #1385 - Complications



Hi,no I test 3 times at set points every day,during times of increased
activity maybe up to 6 times in total.I feel in tune with my diabetes to high
and low bloodsugars.I would suggest anybody who is not quite as sure about
their diabetes to perhaps test a bit more.My hba1c levels are usually around
6.8-7.2.I purposely run my diabetes at this level taking into account my job
as an electrician,which can be quite physical at times.Hope this
helps,regards,Michael.

Hi Michael
Do you only test 3 times a day? That seems quite dangerous if you're on
a pump, as you could be high for hours and not know.
