The Diabetes ranked ninth of the world top ten causes of death announced by the World Health Organization (WHO). The Diabetes cause nearly half of all deaths under the age of 60. In addition, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) released data showing that 463 million people worldwide currently suffer from diabetes. These data indicate that diabetes is a serious international health problem.
The cause of diabetes is related to the insulin that is an important hormone for help glucose enter cells. A healthy pancreas secretes insulin which can be binding the insulin receptors on the cell surface to help glucose enter the cells to produce energy. If the pancreas is damaged and cannot secrete insulin, it will cause type 1 diabetes (DM1). If the insulin receptor on the cell surface is damaged, it will cause type 2 diabetes (DM2). Both will cause cells to be unable to use glucose effectively, resulting in a lack of energy in cells. At this time, the extracellular glucose and blood sugar concentration will increase.
Long-term high blood glucose values will cause a variety of serious complications, and Diabetes patients need to control blood sugar to avoid complications. The blood glucose meter (BGM) needs to be used to regularly monitor the blood glucose level for control Diabetes status. When choosing BGM, you need attention it is conforms the international ISO15197 standard that is a qualified BGM.
The meter must be easy to operate, carry around, and painless during blood sampling.
The meter is better to come with voice broadcast, and easy to find the store to buy its blood glucose test strips for daily measurement basis
