The current advancement has made self-monitoring very simple and fairly accurate. SMBG makes it simple for patients to get an FBG (fasting blood glucose) or PPBG (post prandial blood glucose) checked at home without the need to visit a laboratory or visit a diabetologist to get their medications altered.
Blood testing for sugar (carbohydrate in food gets converted to glucose in the blood) is a more direct and accurate method of checking the level of glucose in the body. Sugars can also be checked in the urine but this is an indirect method and does not accurately reflect the control of sugar in the body.
