(HealthDay News) -- The American Diabetes Association says anyone who is diabetic can benefit from blood glucose checks, especially if the person:

  • Takes insulin or medication to manage diabetes.
  • Is pregnant.
  • Has difficulty keeping blood glucose stable and under control.
  • Has dangerously low blood glucose, or develops ketones from high levels of blood glucose.
  • Develops low blood glucose without the typical warning signs.
