    Self-monitoring of blood glucose (smbg) is very crucial for those diabetics who are on insulin or on certain oral anti-diabetic drugs which can cause hypoglycemia. To achieve best glycemic control it is essential to know how your daily blood glucose levels are fluctuating in an entire day.

    It is easier for a diabetes specialist to adjust drugs or to adjust insulin dose if good smbg record is maintained by the patient.

    Normally we check fasting and 2 hr post prandial blood sugar levels in the lab for routine follow-up. There is a bright chance of sugar excursions in the other post meal readings which get unnoticed. Even in case of hba1c or glycated hemoglobin test we get an average result of blood glucose of last 3 months.

    In practice, I have seen several patients who had to fast and post prandial blood glucose lab tests in the normal range but hba1c levels below 7 is not achieved because they might have high blood sugars in other post meals which have got unnoticed.

    To achieve the best blood glycemic control it is important to control blood sugar levels within normal limits during the entire day and not just fasting or post breakfast levels.

    Interpretation of smbg chart:

    In the above image of smbg chart, I have mentioned 7 point charting system where you can fill your blood glucometer readings which you take on several spots in an entire day.

    Seven points includes:

    Fasting or before breakfast reading
    2 hrs after breakfast
    Before lunch
    2 hrs after lunch
    Before dinner
    2 hrs after dinner or bedtime
    At mid night 3.00 am

    This seven point smbg charting approximately covers entire day glucose fluctuations to some extent (of course not as accurate as cgms).

    I have also mentioned a comment column in the above smbg chart where you can note down change in food or change in insulin dose or any other changes that you have made which probably caused unusual readings like for example if hypoglycemia occurs at before lunch reading and you have skipped breakfast or had very little snack at breakfast you can mention that.

    You do not need to check daily all the 7 points, you can check any one or 2 points randomly depending upon your sugar control.

    More uncontrolled blood sugars require more frequent smbg glucometer monitoring.

    Monitoring of blood glucose at home in case of diabetic pregnancy or gestational diabetes is also important where frequent monitoring and smbg charting of glucometer readings helps a lot to the patient.

    I hope this article will help you to control your blood sugar levels more efficiently.

    If you find that some of the post-meal or pre-meal readings are high or low, please consult your diabetologist with smbg chart to adjust your medication or insulin dosage.

    If you like my article please share it with your friends and family.

    Where to inject insulin (sites)?

    Insulin is injected subcutaneously, i. E just below the skin in fatty tissue. If insulin is injected deeper in muscles then it may get absorbed quickly and can lead to low sugars. Insulin should not be given in scars, moles, varicose veins, sites with broken blood vessels etc. As it may alter its absorption. Insulin injection site must be rotated each time to avoid lipodystrophy (at least, take insulin injection an inch apart from the previous site).

    Sites where you can take insulin injection:

    Abdomen: this is a preferable site for self-administration since absorption of insulin is quicker and predictable. You can take insulin, at least, two fingers width away from belly button.
    Thigh this is second best site after abdomen for self-administration of insulin injection. Top and outer aspect of the thigh is preferred. Avoid injecting insulin on the inner side of the thigh.
    Arms: normally when somebody else is administrating insulin to diabetes patient it can be given on outer back aspect of the arm away from shoulder and elbow in fatty tissue.
    Buttocks: upper outer padded part (wallet area) is a preferred spot.

    Eating Out and Weight Gain

    Eating out no matter what type of restaurant you choose is less healthy than staying home for meals, according to a new study.
    A researcher at the University of Illinois analyzed 8 years of data involving more than 18,000 adults. He found that eating at a full-service restaurant is comparable to, or in some cases less healthy than, eating at a fast-food outlet. Eating out in general led to an average increase of nearly 200 calories per day. People who ate at traditional restaurants were found to consume about 58 grams more cholesterol per day than people who ate at home. Fast-food consumers also took in extra cholesterol, but only around 10 grams more than homebodies. As for sodium and total fat, both fast-food and restaurant diners saw increases in their daily intake. The researcher says his “advice to people hoping to consume a healthy diet and not overeat is that it is healthier to prepare your own foods, and to avoid eating outside the home whenever possible."

    Many overweight and obese people have darkened and a rather flaky texture behind neck, darkening in armpits and other parts of body with creases and folds like elbows, knees or knuckles. This is commonly mistaken as smudge of dirt, uncleanliness or lack of hygiene. Some people think that it is due to repeated friction caused by necklace or chains etc. In fact it is a sign of'diabetes' which is already developed or might develop in future.

    This darkening is due to excessive cell growth and differentiation of fibroblasts caused by excess of insulin in the body especially in obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients.

    In obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients excess amount of fat especially abdominal fat (tummy fat) causes resistance to action of insulin secreted by pancreas and tends to hamper its action. In return, body produces more and more insulin from pancreas to keep blood sugar under control. This excess amount of insulin secreted by body promotes this skin cell growth leading to the visible condition called'acanthosis nigricans' in medical terms.

    After producing excess amount of insulin pancreas start exhausting, this converts into diabetes. At this stage diabetes can be prevented by simple lifestyle modifications & focussed weight loss.

    A bottle of water before mealtimes could aid weight loss

    1. Obesity is a growing health concern. Usually losing weight seems to be a mammoth task, but does not have to be.
    2. The beauty of this weight loss tip is in the simplicity. Just drinking a pint of water, three times a day, before your main meals may help reduce your weight.
    3. It is well established that water is essential for our health. It rids toxins from the body, transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, lubricates joints, regulates body temperature and protects the body's organs and tissues, among other functions.
    4. Some studies have earlier reported that drinking water before a mental task can boost brain performance.
    5. Drinking water increases your metabolic rate temporarily and it makes you feel fuller so you then eat less at mealtimes.
    6. However there are some groups of patients, such as those with heart or kidney failure, for whom consuming a pint of water before mealtimes may not be appropriate.
