Over the past decades, several newer technologies have been developed for monitoring blood glucose levels and diabetes control. These include newer glucometers that are plasma glucose calibrated, to Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS). The latest arrival in the Indian market is the Ambulatory Glucose Profile (AGP). The AGP is helpful in studying the glycemic variability in patients with diabetes. AGP also helps in taking decisions to change diet, and diabetic medications to achieve smoother diabetic control.
