Glucose Monitoring

Control and outcome in type 1 diabetes is improved by patients using glucometers to measure their glucose levels regularly. Some patients are reluctant to use these devices for various reasons; they are useful only if changes in sugar levels produce changes in behavior — chiefly with regard to eating and injecting insulin. And, although the devices are marketed to patients with type 2 diabetes, there is a lack of evidence of effectiveness there, and a certainty that more benefit could be had from that cost if it were spent on diabetes treatment and other assistance.

Diabetes Supply: A glucose meter (or glucometer) is a medical device for determining the approximate amount of glucose in a drop of blood obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet. Glucose meters are portable and designed for use by ordinary people, especially those with diabetes.
