Blood Glucose Monitors: Decision-Making Tools

The idea of checking your blood glucose by poking your finger and putting blood on test strips multiple times a day might seem unpleasant. However, with the proper technique, poking your finger should not hurt and remember that it's important to always keep the big picture in mind. Checking your blood glucose provides information that could help you and your healthcare team monitor and manage your diabetes to give you the best care possible.

 

And consider this: monitors have come a long way since they were first introduced in the 1980's. The first monitors on the market used to require many steps and took much longer to get a result. Over the last 30 years, they've improved in speed, size, features and cost, as well as how much blood is required and the size of the poking device and needle has gotten much smaller.

Without checking YOUR blood glucose, you would not know what effects food, exercise, illness and other factors have on YOUR blood glucose readings.

Checking your blood glucose actually puts you in charge of your diabetes - over time you'll be able to know what your numbers mean and what you can change to keep them in check. A little effort is worth a lot of gain in this case!
