So how many times a day do you test your blood sugar now? It may surprise you to learn that amongst diabetics who bother to test at all (yes, a great many of our kind do not test, period) the most common frequency is once per day. If you use insulin, you really should be checking six times per day at a minimum. If you are on a pump, you should check ten times per day. Some really dedicated diabetics with either deep pockets or great insurance test 12 to 14 times per day.
But no one tests 288 times per day, which just happens to be the minimum testing frequency of any CGM system.
