How to use the Accu-Chek 360° View tool

Using this tool with a healthcare professional's guidance may help you lower your A1C.1

Simply record your blood sugar readings, meal size and energy level before and 2 hours after breakfast, lunch and dinner, and before bed for 3 consecutive days. Then follow these simple steps to understand your results. If you need assistance, please talk to a member of your healthcare team.

Step 1: Which blood sugars are out of range? Follow the order below:

  1. Look for low blood sugars (below your target range)
  2. Look for high blood sugars before meals (above your target range)
  3. Look for high blood sugars after meals (above your target range)

Step 2: When and how often are your blood sugars out of range? Is there a pattern?

You may see a pattern if your blood sugar is low or high (below or above your target range) on 2 of the 3 days you used the tool.

Step 3: Why are your blood sugars out of range?

Possible causes could be challenges with meal planning or carb counting, lifestyle factors such as exercise or stress, medications, the need to adjust your insulin therapy, infusion site issues or others.

Step 4: What action can you take? Is there something you can change to bring your numbers into range?

With the help of your healthcare team, perhaps you could fine-tune your meal plan or portion sizes, activity, medications, your insulin-to-carb ratio, insulin sensitivity factor, insulin pump basal rates, infusion site management or other factors. Take your completed tool to your next appointment so you can discuss possible solutions with your healthcare professional.

If you need assistance with the tool or your results, talk to your healthcare provider.
