It is very important for persons with diabetes to monitor their
glucose levels. One way of doing this is by blood glucose monitoring.
This is done by piercing the finger and letting out a small amount of
blood. The blood is then applied to a disposable test strip that is
chemically active. The test strip with the blood on it is then placed
inside a monitoring device which measures the electrical characteristics
of the blood. Glucose levels are determined through the blood's
electrical characteristics.There are different ways to monitor
your glucose level. One is by using blood glucose meters, one such
device is the Accu Check Compact Plus. To use this, a small amount of
blood should be placed on the glucose test strip and placed inside a
digital meter. In just a few seconds, the digital display will show the
result. Needing only a small amount of blood, glucose meters are less
painful than any other method of testing, making it easier for diabetics
to comply. Glucose meters also have evolved and there are now alternate
sites to get blood. The palm or forearm are considered alternate site
because blood can also be drawn here. These alternate sites are less
painful than the fingers. The only disadvantage to these alternate sites
is that they provide less blood flow than the fingers. Some meters are
either computerized or can be connected to a computer. This allows
results to be downloaded by the physician making it even easier to
monitor blood glucose levels. Some are also multi-test system, meaning
they can be used without loading individual strips to the machine
because they use cartridges or a disk containing many test strips.To
those who need to monitor the blood glucose level every few minutes, a
continuous blood glucose monitor should be used. This type of system has
several parts. The disposable glucose sensor is worn and replaced every
few days. This is implanted just under the skin. A transmitter then
communicates information to a radio receiver that looks like a pager.
The transmitter and radio receiver are not implanted to the skin. The
radio receiver then injects insulin whenever needed. Persons with Type 2
diabetes usually wear this because it is very important for them to
monitor glucose levels especially during strenuous activities. Some
monitors have built in alarms to alert the user if glucose levels are
very high or very low.Monitoring blood glucose is very important
for persons who have diabetes. Choose a monitor that fits your needs and
