Blood glucose meter: This is an electronic device used to measure the
glucose levels. A digital meter gives a reading
of the blood sugar. One must collect a drop of blood on a disposable strip.
Then, he or she should place it on the meter. After a few seconds, the meter will display
the blood glucose levels digitally. It is a very effective method in monitoring the
glucose levels. It is so simple that the patient can do this test
personally at home.
Tell them that if they do not take this seriously these
outcomes are a very real possibility, even in some instances
a probability. Doing the test live and immediately in front of the patient creates patient involvement.
The patient becomes vested in the outcome every visit plus it
also has the benefit that treatment for the patient can begin earlier.
