At-home blood sugar monitoring devices called glucometers provide you with instant feedback and let you know immediately what your blood sugar is. This can give you valuable information about whether your blood sugar is too low, too high or in a good range for you.
Keeping a record of your results can help you pattern manage - providing you with information on how your body is responding to certain foods, exercise, and medicine.
It also provides your doctor an accurate picture of how your treatment is working.
Glucose meters are more sophisticated these days, requiring less blood than in the past, as well as being conveniently sized and portable. They are small enough to take with you anywhere and based on your comfort level, can be used anywhere at anytime.

And while most instruction manuals are user-friendly, this task can seem daunting if you are new to testing or not that technologically savvy. If you are wondering what you need to use a glucometer and what are the basic steps to using one, you can follow these guidelines for safe and easy testing:What You Need to Use a Glucometer
