Today, increasing the prevalence of diabetes mellitus is an important problem in
glucose developing country’s Health and the blood glucose monitoring predicts of in
sufficient blood glucose monitoring side effects. The glucometer devices are small and
used simply so they are used more than the other methods for home blood glucose
monitoring. As the variety of the glucometer devices are increasing from day to day.
In this study, we assess the difference of capillary glucose level and venous glucose
level measured by three glucometer devices; Glucotrend 2, GlucoMen, GlucoCare. 100
diabetic patients took part in this study.
The results of 100 patients study, showed that the venous blood glucose level
measured by these devices with compare of standard method were 2.14% in GlucoCare,
5.3% in Glucotrend 2 and 17.1% in GlucoMen more than the standard level.
The GlucoCare and Glucotrend 2, results had no difference with the standard method
and the blood glucose levels measured with these two devices were similar. Otherwise the
GlucoMen results are more similar to standard method, it has the least confident.
The GlucoCare had the least deference of the mean venous glucose level with the
standard method and the most similarity between the capillary glucose level and venous
glucose level measured by these devices were seen in Glucotrend 2.
