Meaningful Monitoring for type 2 diabetes
You may have heard the phrase “Meaningful Monitoring” but what does it actually mean?
Meaningful Monitoring is carrying out blood glucose monitoring in a purposeful way, You may have also heard it refered to as structured blood glucose monitoring. Checking your blood glucose for the sake of it won’t help you manage your type 2 diabetes, it is only when you do something with the information that what you have done becomes meaningful.
There are many examples of blood glucose monitoring with purpose, things like; checking before and after meals to see how foods impact your blood glucose, or monitoring around exercise to see how you may need to adjust your carb intake. Doing this can help you and your healthcare team establish if your diabetes regimen is working for you, or whether any adjustments need to be made.
We have worked to produce a series of videos to help you understand blood glucose monitoring, why it’s needed, how it’s done and what to do with the information to manage type 2 diabetes. Watch the full series below.
