Lower your hemoglobin A1C - if you have CFRD, A1C measures your average blood glucose over 2 months.
Minimize blood sugar highs and lows - not only is average blood sugar important, but it is critical to minimize extremes and increase the time you spend within a tight blood sugar range.
Improve consistency of testing blood sugar testing - Frequent testing leads to better knowledge on how you react to carbohydrates and insulin. More frequent testing will enable you to better control your blood sugar.
