Blood Glucose Meter

(En español: Medidor de glucosa)

Say: blud gloo-kose me-tur

A blood glucose meter is a small, portable machine that's used to check how much glucose (a type of sugar) is in the blood (also known as the blood glucose level). People who have diabetes often use a blood glucose meter to find out how they are doing.
