Diabetic meters and supplies
A home blood glucose test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) in your blood at the time of testing. You can use a small, portable machine called a blood glucose meter to test your blood at home or wherever you happen to be. This is called blood sugar monitoring or self-testing
Talk with your doctor about how often you should check your blood sugar. How often you need to check it depends on your diabetes treatment, how well your diabetes is controlled and your overall health. People who take insulin to control their diabetes may need to check their blood sugar level several times a day.
