What Is a Blood Glucose Monitor?

A blood glucose monitor is a small device that gives you a measurement of your blood glucose level. A small blood sample placed on the test strip is analyzed by the monitor. The number that appears on the monitor's screen is the level of glucose in your blood. The numbers are measured in millimoles per litre (mmol/L). If the monitor shows "Low" or "Hi" instead of a number, this means that your blood glucose is too low (less than 1.1) or too high (over 33.3). If your result doesn't match how you're feeling, you should check your technique and retest. If the "low" repeats, you should call your healthcare provider. For more information, read the articles on Blood Glucose Monitoring Targets and on Managing Hypoglycemia.
