Laboratory, but: Laboratory determined blood glucose is the best as long as the blood is spun immidiately(separate cell from serum)or is collected in a specil tube where red cells are destroyed, because red cell will continue to break down glucose if not processed immidiately. On the other hand, home blood glucose monitors are also quite reliable specially for day to day decision making.
