diabetes mellitus, glycemia, self-control, glucometers.


The effectiveness of the treatment of diabetes is directly related to the systematic self-monitoring by pa­tients. An indicator that requires continuous measurement is the level of glucose in the blood. Over the years, for a self-testing of glycemia, a large range of portable devices – glucometers is offered. The frequency of testing blood sugar is determined by a number of factors. To make appropriate decisions on the correction of therapeutic measures, the accuracy of measurements is extremely important. Means of the choice, which ensures the accu­racy of the obtained indicators, according to the results of many studies, BIONIME Rightest® glucometers are now considered.
