When to test blood glucose

Timing your routine testing as recommended by healthcare professional can help one see how your meals, medications and activities affect your blood glucose. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that you routinely test blood glucose as an effective part of any self-care program. For people using insulin, the ADA recommends testing 3 or more times a day. If you take another kind of medication, test your blood glucose level as often as your healthcare team recommends. Your logbook is a good way to keep track of routine testing results.

You and your healthcare team will determine how often you should test your blood glucose based on your current health, age and level of activity, as well as the time of day and other factors. They may suggest that you test your blood glucose at any of the following times:

  • Before each meal
  • 1 or 2 hours after a meal
  • Before a bedtime snack
  • In the middle of the night
  • Before physical activity, to see if you need a snack
  • During and after physical activity

Set small goals you can act on

In addition to your routine testing schedule, you may want to check your blood sugar, which may also be suggested by your healthcare professional, if you:

  • Think your blood sugar is too high or too low
  • Adjust your insulin or oral medication
  • Begin a new medication unrelated to diabetes
  • Change your activity program, meal plan, work or school schedule
  • Are sick or under stress
