In suspected cases of diabetes and in any case of emergency, urgent blood glucose estimation is necessary. Also, in cases of severe hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, regular check of blood glucose level is necessary as both conditions can result in loss of consciousness (coma). Blood glucose level can be estimated using a machine called Accu-chek meter. This is used for quantitative blood glucose test in fresh capillary blood. The meter is used together with the test strips
