After adjusted with mean capillary blood glucose
(seven-point/day) at baseline (by using ANCOVA), the estimated MAGE was 3.44 [+ or -] 0.23 mmol/L for group A and 3.12 [+ or -] 0.24 mmol/L for group B, respectively (p = 0.352).
We conclude that persistent low capillary blood glucose
in a patient on high inotropic support can be an early indicator of limb ischaemia and should be interpreted with caution.
At the time of the survey, participants had been checking their daily capillary blood glucose
for an average of 6.8 [+ or -] 2.3 weeks (Table 1), with just over half checking their blood glucose four times a day (32, 53%) and the other participants six times a day (28, 47%).
Working Definition of Diabetes Mellitus (6): If the individual was under antidiabetic treatment for diabetes mellitus or if fasting capillary blood glucose
[greater than or equal to] 126mg/dl or 2hour capillary blood glucose
[greater than or equal to] 200mg/dl or Individuals with symptoms of DM and random blood glucose concentration [greater than or equal to] 200mg/dl.
Baer also alerted us that in the September issue, on page 42--the first page of the Tips in the third column--CBG is not "cell biology and genetics" but, rather, "capillary blood glucose
." We apologize for this egregious error.
In addition, the focus on urine glucose testing to guide insulin adjustments in type 1 diabetes is outdated in the current era of home capillary blood glucose
This comparison was done because in many centers, capillary blood glucose
estimation by glucometer is being done to screen neonatal hypoglycemia.
Euglycemic control was achieved if the fasting capillary blood glucose
was less than 6.1 mmol/L and capillary blood glucose
at 2 h after each of three meals was less than 8.0 mmol/L .
The stepwise process included capillary blood glucose
and hemoglobin [A.sub.lc] tests, and a confirmatory oral glucose tolerance test.
(13.) Proposed strategies for reducing user error in capillary blood glucose
In recent years capillary blood glucose
monitoring (CBGM) has become standard for individuals in the home.
