(Oct 16): As a diabetic, Angie Foo needs to monitor her blood sugar levels closely. Recently, the housewife acquired a device that allows her to do so at home.

“I’ve got quite used to using the device to monitor my blood sugar levels. [Initially,] I used it quite frequently, on a daily basis. But now that I monitor my food intake and exercise and find that they help, I sample my blood with it much less frequently — maybe every three to four days, or sometimes once a week,” she says.

Having the device at home means Foo does not have to go to a clinic to check her blood sugar levels. It also allows her to seek medical attention should her blood sugar level increase.
