Is it okay to perform the diabetes test in public places?

William Lee Dubois
Endocrinology Diabetes & Metabolism
Paraphrasing the esteemed Dr. Seuss:

You can test your blood sugar on a boat.
You can test your blood sugar with a goat.

You can test your blood sugar in the rain.
You can test your blood sugar on a train.

You can test your blood sugar in a box.
You can test your blood sugar with a fox.

You can test your blood sugar in a house.
You can test your blood sugar with a mouse.

You can test your blood sugar here or there.
You can test your blood sugar anywhere.

Baby, you test whenever and wherever you want. I test in restaurants, bathrooms, concerts, stadiums. Please make sure to “test your blood sugar, don’t guess your blood sugar.”
