Blood Glucose and Why It Should Be Monitored

Glucose is categorized as a simple sugar that is derived from carbohydrates. Blood glucose or blood sugar provides the body with the energy needed for physical and mental activities.

It is not only important to have sufficient energy from blood glucose but also crucial to ensure that a healthy level of blood glucose is maintained to avoid an abnormal level of blood glucose and ketones in the blood.  A high level can result in serious health consequences.

This means it is important to monitor blood sugar levels regularly especially for people with diabetes. On Call Plus Glucometer helps one to observe the blood sugar level trend and compare it with how daily activities affect the sugar level.

Importance of Having a Glucometer

One needs to have their own personal glucometer,  to avoid sharing a lancing device and the device with other people. This is to reduce the risks of spreading on contacting disease or illnesses such as HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.

A household glucose meter, also known as a glucometer, is one of the key tools you can use to test in the comfort of your house and keep track of your blood glucose level.

If you are a diabetic patient on insulin, and if you have difficulty keeping your blood glucose level under control, if you are pregnant, if you have issues with ketone levels or if you have low blood glucose level, then you must monitor your blood glucose level a few times daily.

This is to help you to manage unhealthy blood sugar levels (i.e. very high or very low blood sugar level) and high ketone build-up that can result in serious health consequence and medical emergencies.

How A Glucometer Works

Current glucometers like the On Call Plus use test strips containing glucose oxidase, an enzyme that reacts to glucose in the blood droplet, and an interface to an electrode inside the meter.  When the strip is inserted into the meter, the flux of the glucose reaction generates an electrical signal.

The glucometer is calibrated so the number appearing in its digital readout corresponds to the strength of the electrical current: The more glucose in the sample, the higher the number.

Periodic tests via glucose monitoring system plays an important part in the diabetic’s treatment plan, but current models fall short in giving a true picture of glucose fluctuations in real time. The complications of diabetes stem from the blood sugar going outside the safe range.

Catching those times and intervening appropriately can, in theory, lessen the negative effects of the disease, which can include heart disease, blindness, limb amputation, and kidney failure.

People Who Should Use a Glucometer

Someone who has type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), or were diagnosed with gestational diabetes during pregnancy. A major part of your treatment plan should be regularly testing your blood glucose levels with a glucometer.

Using a Glucometer Regularly Helps with:

  • Checking how controlled the blood sugar is and whether it is high or low
  • Recognize patterns when one is more likely to have a spike or crash in glucose
  • See how your glucose levels respond after exercise or in times of stress
  • Monitor the effects of diabetes medications and other therapies
  • Assess how well you’re meeting specific treatment goals
