Should I snack between meals to keep my sugar levels level

I'm not sure what you mean by "level". If the test shows you are within normal levels there is no reason to snack.
What  caregiver said...  many people think that snacking will prevent you from getting too hungry and over eating at meal times.

Really depends on your blood sugar levels and your medications.  if medications are adjusted right then it should not be necessary to snack between meals.  eating lower carb will also help avoid highs and keep levels more stable (though medications may possibly also need to be reduced.

Here’s some advice from the MedHelp website and our Sugar Sense app on when to snack when you have diabetes:

You can find this on the Sugar Sense app by going to the home screen, and clicking the menu bar in the upper left corner. Tap Health Guide, then scroll to "Eat Right." Scroll down for "Smart Diabetes Snacking". Hope this helps!
