What is a Glucometer Monitor?

A glucose meter is a medical device for self monitoring the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. During this process, blood is applied to a glucometer strip of paper that reveals individual patterns to the amount of sugar in the blood.
This ultimately helps patients plan meals and activities, as well as the timing of medications.
Glucometer machine helps to test both high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia).

How to use a Glucometer?

No matter if you test several times a day or only once, you will find accurate results and a better screening of your glucose level after a routine test. Now you can choose to follow a set of steps which may include the following:-

  • Wash your hands with hot water and dry them thoroughly with a towel. If an alcohol swab is used, make sure that the area gets dry before you test.
  • By inserting a needle, set up a clean glucometer lancet device. It's a gadget stacked with the needle that picks your finger's end.
  • Take one test out of your strip box. Remember to close the bottle or box completely to avoid contamination of the sugar strips with dampness or dirt.
  • You have the strip in the meter before collecting blood in each modern meter, so that when it is in the glucose meter, you can put the blood samples on the strip. With a few more seasoned meters, you first put the blood on the strip and then insert the strip in the meter.
  • Pinch your fingertip gently using your Glucometer. Some glucometers allow testing from different locations in your body, such as your arm. Read the manual for your sugar test machine to make sure you draw blood from the right place.
  • Wipe the first drop of blood and then collect a drop of blood on the sugar test strip to make sure you have enough to get a reading. Be careful to let your blood, not your skin, come in contact with the stripe. Your system's food or medication residues may affect the test results.
  • Stop the bleeding by using a cotton ball or gauze pad. Press until bleeding stops.
What is (CGM) Continuous Glucose Monitoring ?

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is a method to track glucose levels throughout the day and night. CGM systems take glucose measurements at regular intervals, 24 hours a day, and translate the readings into dynamic data, generating glucose direction and rate of change reports. 

How does a Glucose Meter work ?

Glucometers provide readings by detecting the level of glucose in a person's blood. To get a reading, a person pricks the skin — most commonly, a finger — and applies the blood sample gained to a test strip inserted in the meter. The glucose in the blood reacts with the chemicals in the strip. 

How do you check  blood sugar levels by glucometer ?
  • After washing your hands, insert a test strip into your meter.
  • Use your lancing device on the side of your fingertip to get a drop of blood.
  • Touch and hold the edge of the test strip to the drop of blood, and wait for the result.
  • Your blood glucose level will appear on the meter's display. 
Can you check blood sugar without blood/pain ?

Immense research and development has enabled some of the best non-invasive glucose monitoring techniques on the market. Patients with diabetes can now monitor their blood sugar levels without puncturing their skin, taking blood or causing pain and trauma. These include the following:-

Light-based  glucometer monitors work by shining a light beam onto the skin which then calculates how much light is absorbed by the glucose and shows how much blood sugar is in the patient's body.

Ultrasound sensors, which are sound waves that humans cannot hear, are used in modern medical procedures to reduce pain and blood loss. These sensors aid in blood sugar measurement to monitor the level of diabetic patients.

Microwave glucose sensors that use electromagnetic waves to measure blood sugar levels in the body
This diabetes monitor can read your blood sugar without any blood.


What is a average glucose level ?

Normal blood sugar levels are less than 100 mg/dL after not eating (fasting) for at least eight hours. ... For most people without diabetes, blood sugar levels before meals hover around 70 to 80 mg/dL. For some people, 60 is normal; for others, 90 is the normal. 

What happens if your blood sugar is over 400 ?

coma and death can occur simply because the blood sugar is so high.HHS usually occurs with blood sugar readings above 400 mg/dl  as thebrain and other functions begin to shut down. When insulin levels are low, the body cannot use glucose present at high levels in the blood.
