blood glucose testing

Regular monitoring of Blood Glucose LevelsĀ  can assist your understanding of how exercise, food and medication affects your body when you have diabetes.

There are a wide variety of blood glucose meters available. Catherine can help you find the one most suitable and teach you the steps you need to take when your Blood Glucose Levels are not within target.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring

This is a great tool to aid your diabetes management. This is useful especially for those using insulin or those concerned about hypoglycaemia. Continuous Glucose sensors are in place from 10 to 14 days and the glucose levels are shown on a meter or on your smartphone. The diabetes educator can also upload the data to evaluate.
