Always follow the ‘4 Ms’ for diabetes self monitoring goals.
- Medication. Discuss any issues with adherence or side effects.
- Monitoring. Review the patient’s blood sugar log to identify patterns. Talk about figures being “above target” or “below target,” instead of saying, for example, that their blood sugar is “high.”
- Meals. Review the patient’s food diary and discuss any changes needed in calories or carbohydrates.
- Movement. Recognize the patient’s efforts to increase physical activity.
