The self-checking of the glycaemia allows the diabetic patient to have immediate information about his/her glucose level, but it must be performed only after accurate training with a physician or with a qualified technician. It is important to point out that the self-checking cannot be performed without constant follow up by the physician (to make up a timetable, to evaluate the results and to define a therapy).
