This photograph depicts a young diabetic girl who was in the process of carrying out a self-monitored blood glucose test. After having performed a finger stick, evidenced by the blood droplet seen upon her left thumb, she was about to test the blood glucose level by using a monitoring device she was holding in her right hand, bringing it into contact with the droplet. Monitoring of blood glucose levels is frequently performed to guide therapy for persons with diabetes.
