Diabetic monitors are an essential tool to any diabetic patient. Without these monitors, blood glucose levels go unchecked, creating a potentially life-threatening situation.
Diabetic monitors are small, electronic devices that accept a small blood sample. The monitor then runs a diagnostic on the blood sample and reports back glucose levels on the results screen. Most blood glucose monitors have easy-to-read digital screens, making them highly user friendly.
Diabetic monitors come in an array of makes and models. Some models are capable of speaking blood glucose results, some are bilingual reporting both in Spanish and English, and others are general models that take in blood and report on a screen. Some diabetic monitors are designed for healthcare facility use, where multiple patients may require blood-glucose testing. These models usually offer an ability to move between patients, taking samples, without ever mixing up samples or risking the health of the patient.
Blood-glucose testing strips and lancets are usually sold separately from the diabetic monitor unit, though some may come with a sample of both to get a user started. Diabetic monitors are easy to maintain and usually run off of batteries, making the unit convenient to bring with the patient anywhere. When it comes to managing diabetes a diabetic monitor offers users peace of mind that they can sufficiently manage diabetes, no matter where they may need to run their test.
