blood sugar, blood pressure, and more

Monitoring your hemoglobin A1c, blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol are very important in keeping your diabetes under control and your results in a healthy range. You will need lab tests for hemoglobin A1c and cholesterol and you can track your blood sugar and blood pressure at home. 

These guidelines are general recommendations. Please check with your doctor about the ranges that are best for you.
