All testing is data. Some more useful than others.

When I first started testing I tested a LOT. I was fascinated about the ups and downs of BG (something I hadn't known about previously) and since I could afford the strips (thanks to insurance) I tested all the time. I would have loved to have had a CGM (continuous glucose monitor). Still would, actually.

But I settled down to a more useful testing method as mentioned above after I ran through the first vial of strips in a week and a half and my frugal nature took over.
