Default Question for those with type 1 diabetes

I got into an argument with my dad today because I rarely do finger prick tests and he thinks that I should be doing them 3 times a day. I have had it for like 2 years now and I am perfectly healthy aside from being diabetic. Every 3 months I go in for the A1C test and every time I have been BARELY outside of the normal non-diabetic range. Because of how tight of control I have on it, I feel I dont really need to check frequently unless I have a meal that I am not familiar with that may have a higher/lower carb count than I may think.

So, on to the question. If you have type 1 diabetes (probably not many here), do you do the finger prick test at least once per day?

There is a poll, people will vote when there is a poll, I am giving them an option to not be a jackass and skew the results.

I also hate you all.

You'll probably be pissed off when things get fucked up on you one day and you don't know.

If there's one thing I hope I never get, it's diabeetus.

"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight-of-hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin. But if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit."

- Josiah Charles, President of the Bank of England & 2nd richest man in Great Britain (1880-1941)

Given that I'm a healthcare professional with abundant and widespread exposure to diabetes, I can say this: good management of diabetes has a lot more to do with consistency and good habits than it does checking your insulin and glucose levels. I think you have a valid point about not having to stick more than once a day in your "nothing surprising" assessment, and I think your dad has a point that you've had some abnormal readings.

The elephant in the room here, however, is that your dad does not yet think you are being responsible. You on the other hand, are doing nothing to offer him assurances that you are doing everything you can to control the disease. (Other than arguing and claiming that abnormal values are BARELY abnormal, which only emphasizes your shirking of responsibility)

If you truly want a solution to your issue, you should approach your father with a better organized plan for control and monitor. If you just want some forumer to say "O YA U TOTALY RITE FUCK UR DAD", then consider it done and let the topic go.
