Description

While the prevalence of all types of chronic conditions is increasing, diabetes is one of the few long-term conditions that individuals can successfully manage and control on a day-to-day basis, providing that they have access to appropriate advice and support. Blood glucose monitoring and patient education are essential in diabetes care and management, and if used appropriately, can help to achieve maximum benefit for the patient and diabetes care team. This learning module considers the link between blood glucose levels and the incidence of diabetes-related complications. It explores the different blood glucose monitoring strategies, particularly self-monitoring of blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes. The frequency of blood glucose monitoring, and the identification of patterns and trends in blood glucose control are highlighted and applied to practice.

Objectives

This module aims to highlight the role of blood glucose monitoring in the prevention of diabetes-related complications, and to provide information on the different methods and approaches that can be used to monitor diabetes control.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Discuss the importance of effective blood glucose monitoring in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Identify recommended blood glucose levels in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Discuss the use of urinalysis, HbA1c (glycated haemoglobin) and self-monitoring of blood glucose in reducing the risk of diabetes-related complications.
Recognise patterns and trends in patients’ blood glucose levels.
