Why Is It Important To Take A Fingerstick Reading Before Meal Time
Diabetes ?: I presume you have been diagnosed with diabetes. A blood sugar reading before meal time will tell your physician (and you) how well your blood sugar is being controlled.

Yes: Taking a long acting insulin (lantus) and a shorter acting insulin (Actrapid) is called basal/bolus therapy, and is the preferred way to treat type 1 diabetes. It more closely mimics the function of the normal pancreas. However, newer "analog" insulins (Novolog, Humalog, (insulin lispro) Apidra) work faster and are more predictable than Actrapid, and are preferred, and should be taken before each meal. ...Read more
