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 (see PHIL 13564), and introduced the blood droplet to the glucose monitor (see PHIL 13565), she was now in the process of reading the liquid crystal display on the monitor in order to find the level of glucose in her blood. Monitoring of blood glucose levels is frequently performed to guide therapy for persons with diabetes.
