Routine or daily blood glucose testing

For people using an insulin pump or insulin injections throughout the day, the ADA recommends testing multiple times daily. If you take another kind of medication, test your blood sugar level as often as your healthcare team recommends.

You and your healthcare team will determine when you should check your blood sugar 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 sugar 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

If you think your blood sugar might be too high, too low or falling

When you're sick or under stress
