This means that blood sampling is done with a small syringe or needle (needle wing) with a glass tube, checked with a relatively large mesian analysis,  contained laboratory facility.

For the purpose of further monitoring of blood glucose, blood can be checked from the material of capillary blood vessels, usually done by pricking the fingertip small lancet needle automatically. A drop of blood samples was enough to be attached to the end of the strip / checker reagent strips that attach to the portable blood glucose testing tool, cell phone-sized or smaller. People with diabetes can check yourself himself in this way without Antuan from others, therefore also called self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG).

Below are the details of blood glucose test results to determine whether or not including DM. Fasting blood glucose means no caloric intake at least 8 hours before the blood test.

Blood sugar checks by consensus Perkeni 2006:

When blood glucose levels, if the DM is greater than or equal to 200 mg / dL.

Reduce juices Drug Efficacy

Be careful about drinking juice, especially when you’re in the treatment period. Type of drug efficacy decreased when accompanied by juice is a cure for heart disease, cancer, post-transplant organ rejection reactions and infections.

Orange juice, grapefruit (citrus sort of larger ones), and apples can reduce the body’s ability to absorb a certain type of drug. Can even make the drug loss cure. So as disclosed to Canadian researchers.

David Bailey, professor of clinical pharmacology at the University of Western Ontario was the first researcher who revealed that grapefruit juice can increase the absorption of some drugs to likely change the drug should be safe to be dangerous. After that, Bailey made ??a similar study as part of its sustainable research. The result is grapefruit juice and some other fruit species reduces the oral absorption of some drugs, but these types of drugs are urgently needed by people with chronic diseases.

This conclusion was drawn after the team’s researchers examined healthy participants who drank antihistamine drug used to combat allergies, with grapefruit juice, naringin water is given (so that grapefruit sour taste), and plain water. Apparently, the drug is taken using grapefruit juice to lose at least half the dose efficacy than drugs taken with plain water. Meanwhile, the water fed , blocking content important in medicine, which serves to bring drugs from the small intestine into the bloodstream. With obstruction of the essential content of the carrier is then automatically reduced drug absorption, may even attenuate the medical benefits of the drug.
