How can I monitor the impact of my diet on my blood glucose levels?

Effectively monitoring the impact of your diet on blood glucose levels involves frequent self-monitoring of blood glucose, noting down what and when you eat, and recognizing how different foods affect your blood sugar levels. Keeping a food diary can help you track what you eat and how it corresponds with changes in blood glucose levels. This will provide valuable insights when discussing your diabetes management plan with your healthcare provider. Moreover, understanding the carbohydrate content of foods and the concept of glycemic index can also aid in better diet management.
