    4! Before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner and 3-4 hours after dinner just before bed. :) overnight if really high or really low as well - and more during the day if really high or sick. :(

    5-10 times per day if I'm not wearing a CGM; 2-4 times per day if I am (more 2 than 4).

    10-12 without CGM because if not I get anxious to know! With CGM 2-4 times.. I wear the CGM 30 weeks out of the year so sometimes I go through two things of strips in a day and sometimes I only check twice.
