Dx: If your A1c and fasting blood glucose are all within range there seems to be no need to check your blood glucose more than once a week. If the 'once a week" gives you bad results, go back to treatment. If not - check your blood sugar once a week. If that is OK - relax and enjoy.
If not, please see your primary doctor.
