WHAT IS GLUCOMETER? A glucose meter (or glucometer) is a medical device for determining the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. It is a key element of home blood glucose monitoring (HBGM). A small drop of blood, obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet, is placed on a disposable test strip that the meter reads and uses to calculate the blood glucose level. The meter then displays the level in mg/dl or mmol/l. Glucometers are as easy to use as the mobile phones. They are handy, less expensive and help people with diabetes check their blood sugar at home, school, or work. With improvements in technology the amount of blood needed is less than a drop. Since results are instantaneous it is ideal for doctors to use in their clinics so that they can advice the patient how to adjust their medications right away. They are also ideal as a bedside monitoring aid for sick patients as it helps the nurse to periodically check the glucose level. With improved accuracy and lowered costs, more and more people prefer to use the glucometer in most situations and surely the patients are a happier lot as they get to know their status immediately. The president of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) very clearly advocates 'Home blood glucose monitoring' as a cost effective, simple, and relatively cheap tool for improving the quality of life and the prognosis of all people with both insulin dependent diabetes as well as non-insulin dependent diabetes. The IDF assures us that the concept of self-monitoring has a sound backing of controlled trials showing favorable outcomes. WHY SUGARSCAN GLUCOMETERS?
