Individual measurements of glycemia — problems and errors in application
Keywords:diabetes mellitus, glycemia, self-control, glucometers
Currently according to many years of experience and the results of numerous studies the feasibility of selfmonitoring is beyond doubt. Despite the widespread use of glucometers, when they operate, there is a range of issues related to possible problems and mistakes in application. This, as a rule, affects the accuracy of the indicators or their assessment, which may be a prerequisite for the appointment of inadequate medical treatment. Getting incorrect results when using glucometers, mainly related to user errors, which accounts for almost 90 %. In other cases, the cause of incorrect results is instrumental, medical, force majeure (for example, when using the device and test strips in extreme climatic conditions) and other factors. The glucometers of choice, the conditions and rules of use which minimize the occurrence of errors, are BIONIME Rightest® and TM GAMMA glucometers.
