It's not magic.

The testing of the glucose levels of your blood tell a sory for you and your doctor - how your body reacts to sugar, whether your medication levels are right, etc.

As a consequence blood levels can be measured before a meal, a set period of time after a meal, after fasting. Establish with your doctor or health professional what schedule of testing you should be on, keep good records (most glucometers will do a lot of number crunching for you and some can tie into your home computer)
