Glucose Meters Directory
Knowing how to monitor blood glucose levels is an essential task in managing diabetes. Patients use glucose meters in a two-step process. First, patients prick their fingers for a drop of blood. Then, they dip a test strip into the blood. When put into the meter, it shows how much sugar is in your blood. Glucose meters also show if blood sugar is too high or too low. Meters range from basic models to models measuring multiple functions. Glucose meter costs vary by manufacturer. Also, insurance coverage varies from carrier to carrier.
