ABSTRACT Self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) systems have the potential to play an important role in the management of diabetes and in the reduction of risk of serious secondary clinical complications. This review describes the transition from simple urine sugar screening tests to sophisticated meter and reagent strip systems to monitor blood glucose. Significant developments in design and technology over the past four decades are described since the first meter was introduced in 1970. Factors… Expand
A history of continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) in self-monitoring of diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
The scope of this review is to present a brief history of CGMs, both with the development of these medical devices and the challenges/limitations that they have shown. Expand
Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A Perspective on Its Past, Present, and Future Applications for Diabetes Management
TLDR
The clinical benefits of CGM are discussed; its challenges, including accuracy and user experience; and its present and future role in the management of diabetes are discussed. Expand
Personal blood glucose analyzers
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the most important hits of the last six decades in the development of point-of-care devices that made possible the self-monitoring of blood glucose either in a noncontinuous or continuous way, with a critical comparison of the different contributions. Expand
Introduction to SMBG
TLDR
The chapter discusses the historical aspects of SMBG development and gradual accumulation of clinical evidence for its efficacy in improving metabolic control and reducing hypoglycemia in insulin-treated diabetes, culminating in landmark clinical trials demonstrating that intensive insulin therapy informed by SMBG delays and/or prevents chronic complications of diabetes. Expand
Glycemic Status Assessment by the Latest Glucose Monitoring Technologies
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to offer an overview of the glycemic status assessment opened by the current data management provided by latest glucose monitoring technologies, and the applicability and personalization of the different glycemic monitoring devices used in specific insulin-treated diabetes mellitus patient populations will be evaluated. Expand
Continuous glucose monitoring in cystic fibrosis - A practical guide.
TLDR
The history of glucose monitoring, a review of the literature pertaining to CGM, and practical uses of CGM technology and its application for the evaluation and management of cystic fibrosis related diabetes are discussed. Expand
National Consensus in the use of the Flash Glucose Monitoring System in Portugal
Monitoring of glucose levels is essential in the management of diabetes, particularly in insulin therapy. The fl ash glucose monitoring system FreeStyle Libre® is an intermittent continuousExpand
Role of continuous glucose monitoring for type 2 in diabetes management and research.
TLDR
The value of professional CGM in T2D for physicians, patients, and researchers is derived from its ability to discover previously unknown hyper- and hypoglycemia (silent and symptomatic). Expand
Glucose monitoring in diabetes mellitus
TLDR
There are newer continuous glucose monitoring systems like the flash glucose monitoring system that provide an almost real-time recording of plasma glucose levels and give a better understanding of the dynamics of glucose fluctuations and the factors responsible. Expand
Current concepts in blood glucose monitoring
TLDR
This review explains the various blood glucose monitoring systems with special focus on the monitoring systems like self- monitored blood glucose (SMBG) and continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) and their incorporation in routine clinical management of diabetes mellitus. Expand

Tests of glycemia in diabetes.
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to summarize current knowledge about the tests used most widely in monitoring the glycemic status of people with diabetes, and it includes tests of urine glucose and ketones and tests of blood glucose and glycated proteins (hemoglobin and serum proteins). Expand
SELF-MONITORING OF BLOOD-GLUCOSE Improvement of Diabetic Control
TLDR
Patients found self-monitoring more informative than urine tests; their active involvement in management of their disease resulted in better motivation, greater understanding of diabetes, and a sustained improvement in control. Expand
Frequency of blood glucose monitoring in relation to glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
In this cross-sectional study of patients with type 2 diabetes, the increase in frequency of self-monitoring of blood glucose with increasing HbA(1c) value was associated with the higher proportion of insulin-treated patients in higher H bA( 1c) categories. Expand
Home Monitors of Blood Glucose: Comparison of Precision and Accuracy
TLDR
This study analyzes and statistically compares the accuracy and precision of the HMBGs produced by the major competitors and concludes that the Accuchek bG and Glucoscan 2000 statistically are the most accurate and precise H MBGs. Expand
Lack of compliance with home blood glucose monitoring predicts hospitalization in diabetes.
TLDR
In response to the large number of telephone inquiries received, the manufacturer of this device mailed out a brief questionnaire examining current home blood glucose monitoring practices and attitudes about this activity during the years 1999 and 2000. Expand
Screening for diabetes mellitus in general practice using a reflectance meter system. The Islington Diabetes Survey.
TLDR
The feasibility of using a blood-glucose reflectance meter to identify subjects with abnormal glucose tolerance in a community-based screening programme for diabetes mellitus has been assessed and the unit cost of detecting 1 case of DM became cheaper than using the laboratory glucose-oxidase method when 143 subjects had been screened.

TLDR
Although the new versions of the monitors are easier to use, their analytical performance is not superior to earlier models. Expand
Glucose Meters: A Review of Technical Challenges to Obtaining Accurate Results
TLDR
The challenges involved in obtaining accurate glucose meter results are reviewed, including multiple complexities involved in defining technical accuracy and no clear consensus among standards agencies and professional societies on accuracy criteria. Expand
Short-term evaluation of an electro-chemical system (ExacTech) for blood glucose monitoring.
TLDR
The results confirm that this new pen-sized glucose meter gives accurate and reproducible measurements--faultless technical function provided--and, compares favorably with the well-established reagent strips for blood glucose self-monitoring. Expand
Evaluation of a new blood glucose monitoring system with auto-calibration.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the Ascensia CONTOUR System, which does not require calibration by the user, is a convenient and accurate instrument with useful features for people who routinely monitor BG. Expand
