The monitoring point in common, fasting and postprandial 2 hours under special circumstances (such as insulin) also need to add test before meals and before taking the medicine, in order to understand the trends and characteristics of blood glucose, adjust the dosage, to avoid the occurrence of hypoglycemia. In order to understand the overall situation in a period of time of blood glucose control, patients need every 3 months to do a HbA1c test; continuous glucose monitoring system in clinical application (CGMS), can collect 288 dynamic blood glucose values recorded in 24 hours, the change of blood disease of the people all day long wave observation hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, and other changes can be found in commonly used detection methods in certain time periods can detect the situation, so that doctors can fully and reliably understand the patients all day long blood glucose information, more accurate treatment plan.

According to the blood sugar value, the individual program is the most appropriate

A way of life, cultural background, social status, economic conditions, the degree of obesity, treatment and risk of complications of differences in diabetic patients, physicians for treatment should also be reference value of blood glucose, as far as possible in the analysis of the characteristics of each patient, to develop a more appropriate and individualized diet, exercise, medication plan, achieve the effectiveness and safety of.
