In brief: Blood glucose tests

Diastix measure glucose in urine.
This is a very inaccurate picture of what is going on in the blood stream, as the urine being tested may have been produced hours ago. Self blood glucose monitoring, using a small blood specimen, is much more accurate. It is the standard followed by most diabetic patients.
