Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose (SMBG) is an approach whereby people with diabetes measure their blood sugar (glycemia) themselves using a glycemic reader (glucose meter). Based on the reading, they can adjust or check the effect of their treatment (diet, exercise, insulin, antidiabetics, stress management). Within the wider context of diabetes self-management, self-monitoring supports the maintenance of blood glucose (sugar) at levels as close as possible to target values.
