Why the Self-serving? It allows us to make adjustments in your meal plan or the dose of insulin levels to know glucose before and after food. We can prevent or detect hypoglycemia.

This very well documented in medical literature that intensive insulin therapy slows the progression of chronic complications either by Muliple doses of insulin or continuous infusion of the same with a subcutaneous pump. In either case you need to know the blood glucose levels frequently in the day to make adjustments in insulin dose and avoid hypoglycaemia. As recommended intensive self-monitoring is at least six shots of glucose-dating. Fasting before, two hours after each meal and at 3:00 am.
