‘But I don't recommend at-home blood glucose curve monitoring!'

Dave Bruyette, DVM, DACVIM, wants you to reconsider. Read this.

My idea? At-home blood glucose curve tracking.

This is something I frequently train clients with diabetic pets how to do. What I'm finding is clients tend to get a little confused about when to check blood glucose and how long to continue the curve, so I made this take-home form (Word doc).
