'Every time you test your blood sugar and it's not what it's "supposed to be," either too high or too low, then a crime has been committed. What's the crime? A blood sugar that's out of range.
When you get a reading that is too high or too low, you should figuratively, pin your detective badge on and begin looking for clues as to what caused it.
Let's say you test your blood sugar two hours after breakfast. Your reading is 227mg/dl. Not so good. You turn your work ID around to its back side, the side that's got the picture of the detectives badge glued to it. That's right, for the next several minutes you are not Jim the software engineer, you are Detective Jim.
Let's get started.'
