Global Self-monitoring Blood Glucose (SMBG) Market: Overview 

Glucose monitoring is a necessary step towards managing diabetes. Diabetes is a kind of clinical condition where the blood glucose level increases due to the pancreas inability in producing insulin. Self-monitoring blood glucose helps diabetic patients in deciding the dosage of insulin, food intake, and type of physical exercise needed for a day. SMBG or self-monitoring blood glucose is a modern procedure of diabetes management where the blood glucose meters are used for checking glucose levels. Such procedure provides a precise measure of capillary glucose concentrations. Apart from blood glucose meters, self-monitoring blood glucose technology also uses lancets, and test strips for controlling glycaemia.
