Curious- how often do you test your Bg?

    I notice my dd tests about 4 times a day. Sometimes more if she is active; and sometimes less if she is distracted.

    Do you test your bg quite regularly or does it fluctuate ?

    I check mine 6-10 times a day. But I'm homeschooled, so I have a little more freedom.

    Since dx I've tested 8 to 15 times most days. Around 12 is normal for me, sometimes 8 or less if cgms is really accurate. My control isn't even particularly great.

    I'm testing anywhere from 4 to 10+ times a day. I test more if I'm having issues, I test less if I'm not doing a lot and things are going okay.

    My DS tests minimum of 5 times a day, the past few weeks I think it's been about 8 times a day.

    I test about 6-8 times a day, down from 10-12 before I got my Dexcom.

    Before I got my CGM I checked about 18-20 (bs drops at night, check almost everyhour) now I check no less than 8 times a day
