Devices

An important aspect of good diabetes self management relies on the use of glucose monitoring devices, or "glucose meters".  The meters are used to measure the concentration of glucose ("sugar") in the blood.  All available monitors require drawing a small amount of blood which can be done with minimal discomfort from the finger tip or other sites on the hand or arm.
