Monitoring glucose levels provides information about the effects of food intake, medication, activity and stress as glucose levels change throughout the day and night. Self-monitoring provides results that are used to determine if an adjustment needs to be made to insulin, other diabetic medications, diet and/or activity to achieve optimal diabetes self-management.
