Food Diary and Glucose Log
Use a blood glucose monitor and test strips to check and record your blood sugar 4 times a day (1st thing in the morning when you get out of bed, and 2-hours after breakfast, 2-hours after lunch, and 2-hours after dinner) for 3 days. Using this method, the goal for fasting blood sugar should be 95 mg/dl or lower, and the 1-hour after meals goal should be 140 mg/dl or lower. Continue to eat your normal foods and write out what you eat on the same log as your blood sugar levels. Please be sure to bring this log all filled in to your 28 week appointment.
