How well you control your Blood Sugar is how well you are controlling your Diabetes!

There are two main ways that you can check your Blood Sugar:

Prick Test using a Blood Glucose monitor
You do this yourself and you record your levels.
It tells you what your Blood Sugar is at that moment – we will talk more about this later

HBA1AC
This is normally done by your Doctor and sent to a lab – This gives you an average of your Blood Sugar for the last 3 months and is the more important test
