Answer

Patients should adjust their daily dosage(s) on the basis of their self-monitoring of glucose levels before each meal and at bedtime. Patients should also assess their plasma glucose levels at 2:00-4:00 AM at least once per week during the first few weeks of treatment and thereafter as indicated.
