Clinistix: Advantages are the patients can check their blood sugar and keep a record of it, if they are being treated for diabetes, also helps them to know if they get hypoglycemic episodes but the disavantages are that you can get false readings if not used properly, and get false sence of security, and you start to ignore medical advice.You still need to check you aic hemoglobin which tells you the truth.
