Caption

Blood glucose test. Drop of blood on a patient's finger, drawn using a pen-like lancing device (lower centre). The blood is then placed on the sticks (centre right), which change colour according to the concentration of blood sugar (glucose). The lancing device is designed to make drawing blood less painful. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which unused sugars accumulate in the blood and urine. It is caused because the body fails to produce the hormone insulin or fails to respond to it properly. Monitoring their blood glucose levels allows diabetics to control the disease through diet, medication and insulin injections.
