Have you been diagnosed with diabetes recently?  If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, your doctor should have provided you with a blood sugar monitoring machine called a glucometer.  A glucometer is a device that measures the amount of sugar that is present in your blood.  Your doctor will most likely recommend that you check your blood sugar levels several times per day.  It is important that you ask your physician to show you how to use your new glucose machine properly.
