If you are diabetic, it is important to monitor your blood sugar levels. Diabetes basically means that your blood sugar levels are high.
This is because either your body does not produce insulin, the compound which is required to transform sugar into energy inside the body, or that your body is unable to properly utilize the insulin that it produces.
In either case, the glucose in your blood stays high since it is not getting converted to energy. This can have a number of disastrous effects, which is why it is important to monitor your blood sugar levels on a regular basis.
A diabetic person is at a very high risk if the blood sugar levels in his body constantly remain high. The main risks include damage to the kidney, to the eyes, and to the heart, often leading to a stroke, which can be fatal, of course. If blood sugar levels are not monitored, there is no telling when they reach dangerous levels and pose a definite risk to the person.
For a very long time, it wasn’t easy to monitor blood sugar levels. There were three separate tests that could be conducted to check sugar levels, but they all needed the patient to go to a clinic and get the tests done.
In today’s day and age of hectic schedules and long work days, more and more people were finding it difficult to make it to the clinic for a regular check up. This often resulted in their being unaware of their blood sugar levels, either causing it to soar, or in leading to constant anxiety on part of the patient. The problem was also acute amongst senior citizens who had even more trouble making it to clinics to get their blood sugar levels checks on a regular basis.
However, the medical community has not been immune to the problems of the diabetics. Soon there was available a near magical solution to this problem in the form of diabetes strips.
These are easy to use strips that changed the way diabetics were able to control their blood sugar levels. They made it possible for a diabetic to check his or her blood sugar levels in the comfort of one’s home at least 3-4 times a day, if required. The procedure is simple to follow and this method has become extremely popular in recent times.
You may find yourself having extra strips frequently or occasionally.
