Not everyone with diabetes needs to check their blood sugars. If in doubt, ask your GP or Nurse.
• If you check, you should have your personal targets. The most
common targets are:
| Before Breakfast||5-7|
| Before Lunch ||4-7|
| Before Tea ||4-7|
| Before Bed||6-10|
• Blood sugar readings always vary. No-one gets all their readings
inside these targets!
• If most of your readings are out of range, ask your GP or Practice
Nurse for advice.
