Why Is It Important to Monitor My Blood Sugar?

Blood sugar monitor elderly – This is a common search that older adults with diabetes often perform to understand why they should regularly monitor their blood sugar. Many people with diabetes “prick” their fingers, but don’t understand why they have to do it. They don’t check their blood sugar, or they frequently stop doing it because “it hurts,” “my sugar is always high,” “I feel okay,” “the strips are expensive,” “I am scared of needles” or other reasons. This video module explains the importance of – and reasons for -- monitoring blood sugar in the elderly.
