Description:Caption:
The woman pictured here, was about to check her blood glucose level. This process is known as self-monitoring blood glucose, and it is a way for people with diabetes to find out how much glucose is in their blood. A drop of blood from the fingertip is placed on a special coated strip of paper, revealing the amount of glucose in the blood. Many people use an electronic meter to get this reading.
