Answer

Answer

Health care providers should follow standard protocols for monitoring blood glucose levels. Information gathered from blood glucose monitors and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) levels may help guide management of patients with diabetes. Monitoring of patients with newly diagnosed diabetes may also help patients achieve a better understanding of their disease.
