How often do you download and review your diabetes data?
Several times a week
A few times a month
Only before endo appointments
We never download and review our data
The responses to our latest poll make a lot of sense, because data shows that our CWD community is doing the diabetes data download before endo appointments ... and not often outside of those scheduled visits.
We encourage the download and review of diabetes data to help people with diabetes, and their caregivers, identify blood sugar trends to help make adjustments to food, exercise, and medicine (with healthcare provider input, of course). Seeing the data daily is helpful for moment-to-moment decisions, and seeing the data mapped out over the course of a few weeks or months can help drive decisions towards tighter blood sugar control.
