The body is a delicate machine. We have a lot of different systems that work together. If one of these starts to go out of whack, then we start to feel tired, sluggish and not ourselves. One way that we can ensure that we are functioning correctly is with blood glucose monitoroing.
While you can do this on your own, it is always a good idea to have someone else monitor for safety. If you are the one monitoring don’t be afraid to check in with yourself. I use an app on my phone which allows you to keep an eye on your numbers and also talk about them with other people who are going through the same thing.
If you are not a fan of technology, then you can go and look at some different diet and medical journals and diaries. There are many of these online and you can pick them up for a few dollars. How they work is they will have a repeating pattern of questions that you need to answer. These can then be taken to your doctor at your next appointment for review.
If you really can’t afford a monitoring system, then I would get in contact with your doctor and see if they can provide you with an email or postal subscription to their journal. This way at least the information will be coming directly from them instead of having to try to find it on your own time.
Watch your diet
You also want to watch what you eat and how you eat it. The way that different foods react and interact with your body is very important. Medications and other issues will also play a large role in the process.
When it comes to monitoring it is important that we do it but don’t stress yourself out about it. If you miss a day or don’t have your numbers exact, then it won’t be the end of the world. Create a routine for your overall health and you should be good to go.
