Ambrish Mithal, Chairman, Dept. of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Medanta Medicity Gurgaon, says that self blood glucose monitoring is vital to check whether your blood glucose level is under control or not. A person can check his blood sugar level by pricking on his finger with the device used for the purpose. It is very easy to perform and safe to use. In case of gestational diabetes where a woman needs to check her blood glucose level 3-4 times a day, it is an invaluable tool. Self monitoring of glucose is very important in the management of diabetes. Ketone tests are also done, but only in case of severe diabetes. If ketone appears in a dip stick test (stick is dipped in urine to check the sugar level), immediately consult your doctor.
