I noticed on the managing diabetes group you said you take cinnamon capsules. Where do you get them? I have read really good things about them.

Hi Linda,
I've found out my cell phone does a excellent job on alerts for many things blood testing, medication, and blood pressure.
I'm not perfect so I try each day to make things better.

hi Linda have you had any diabetes counseling, or any diabetes education classes.
If you are a type 2 this is how it goes.

Fasting Blood sugar. FBS

First thing you do when you wake up, no rushing about dressing or messing with hair. Once your body is ready for action it will put sugar into the sytem.
Do the test right away. Wash hands in hot water and be sure to rinse off any soap or any lotion if you put on hand lotion before bed.
Warm hands bleed easier.

I use my fingers. If you do the fingers stick the sides of the fingers not the fingerprints. The sides have fewer nerve endings in them the fingerprints have more and they become sore since they are used so often when typing etc,

so USE THE SIDES

Do not squeeze hard , gently squeeze your finger in the middle to below the last segment push the blood out without any sqeeze near the fingerprint.

WIPE OFF first drop of blood and let another drop but repeat using a test strip.

RECORD IT and then to complete the test you eat breakfast.

EXACTLY 2 hours after you put that first food across your lips and swallow set a timer or write it down. I use my microwave it BEEPS and then you do the second test 2 hours after your fasting one. Wash hands and repeat the test.

STRESS will also raise your BS so do it exactly this way and you will know you are doing it right. HUGS Take care, emoticon emoticon emoticon Pat in Maine
