Stringent monitoring of blood glucose in diabetes plays an important role as the treatment of the disease itself. Blood glucose monitoring (BGM) strategies such as measurement of Hb1Ac, Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose (SMBG) and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) plays a vital role in achieving the important goal of preventing long term complications of diabetes. Although the use of BGM is recommended by various international guidelines in T1DM and T2DM, there is no consensus on the utility of BGM in India. So, there is a need to develop a guidance for uniform monitoring mechanism among the care givers taking into account the variations and challenges that are unique to Indian population. A committee was established that comprised of physicians, researchers and other healthcare professionals having expertise in diabetes treatment to oversee the formulation of guidelines on different monitoring and treatment aspects of diabetes. Extensive literature searches were conducted to identify and analyze the evidence available on BGM. An initial draft of BGM guidelines was presented to core members who discussed the subject matter and presented their opinion. This was then taken to wider expert audience to invite their comments that were incorporated in the initial draft. The first compilation was presented at a conference attended by nearly 200 experts. Again, their opinion was sought and the next version was prepared which was sent to core committee members for the final inputs. The Indian consensus guideline on BGM using Hb1Ac, SMBG and CGM as the primary tools was then finalized
