Should I check my blood sugar after an insulin injection?

    Check your blood sugar 1.5 hours after bolusing. Testing after you bolus tells you if you took the right amount of insulin and gives you a chance to correct before it’s out of range. We are never the same two days in a row, so it never hurts to check it twice!
