I'm new here, but I've been a type 2 diabetic for quite a few years now, but have only recently started paying close attention to my numbers. (I'm older now, and I don't want to take insulin, but I also have a binge/compulsive eating disorder that gets me in a lot of trouble with chocolate and candy.) I'm curious to know: How often do you check your blood sugar? None of the doctors I've gone to have ever made it a requirement, but I try to test it now and again, usually first thing in the morning to see my fasting numbers.I'd also like to know if any of you Type 2 are familiar with the Time in Range measurements, and do you pay attention to them?
Thanks in advance! Have a great weekend! :)
