Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is an important self-care activity for patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) to achieve glycaemic control. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of providing SMBG supplies on self-care among patients with uncontrolled T2DM.

Continuous glucose monitoring tends to replace capillary blood glucose (CBG) self-monitoring. Our aim was to determine the agreement between CBG and a flash glucose monitoring system (Flash-GMS) in tr...
Diabetes mellitus is a condition that results in elevated blood glucose levels. Continued elevation can contribute to progressive micro- and macrovascular complications, leading to renal, nerve and oc...
Blood glucose monitoring is an important part of diabetes management. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology has become an effective complement to conventional blood glucose monitoring methods...
The aim of our study was to establish if 48-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is more reliable than 24-hour monitoring in order to reduce the impact of external factors on blood pressur...
Neonatal hypoglycemia is a common and treatable risk factor for neurological impairment. Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) can show glucose concentrations in real time. Using an alarm o...
To evaluate the impact of the Abbott Sensor Based Glucose Monitoring System on glycaemic control (HbA1c) compared to Self Monitoring Blood Glucose (SMBG) testing using a randomised control...
Introduction and objective: The current state of glucose monitoring includes the use of A1C, self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG), and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). CGM technolog...
To determine if the frequency of blood glucose testing in patients with type 2 diabetes who are being treated with diet and exercise alone or diet and exercise plus oral agents will impact...
The goal of this study is to test whether a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, compared with a sulfonylurea, improves time in normal blood glucose range and reduces blood glucose variabilit...
This pilot study aims to evaluate the feasibility of close glucose monitoring and management of patients (targeting fasting and pre-meal glucose of 4-7 mmol/L) using state-of-the-art flash...
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
