|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding diabetic patient self-monitoring. Introduction: Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is the process by which diabetic patients test their own blood glucose level at home using a blood glucose meter. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is increasing in use as an adjunct to SMBG or alone, and involves monitoring blood glucose concentrations continuously using a continuous glucose monitor. Aims: • To investigate the perception of patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) regarding self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM); • To identify problems encountered when carrying out blood glucose monitoring.|
