The manufacturer cited studies that show the product is just as effective despite not giving an answer to one decimal place, something they argue is unnecessary for control of blood sugar.This debate also happened in Germany where "Glucoflex-R" was an established strip for type 2 diabetes.Another early glucose meter was the Ames Reflectance Meter by Anton H. Home glucose monitoring was demonstrated to improve glycemic control of type 1 diabetes in the late 1970s, and the first meters were marketed for home use around 1981.The two models initially dominant in North America in the 1980s were the Glucometer, introduced in November 1981, whose trademark is owned by Bayer, and the Accu-chek meter (by Roche).Managers of laboratories argued that the superior accuracy of a laboratory glucose measurement outweighed the advantage of immediate availability and made meter glucose measurements unacceptable for inpatient diabetes management.
Critics argued that test strips read by eye are not as accurate or convenient as meter testing.
It can also be a strip of glucose paper dipped into a substance and measured to the glucose chart.
It is a key element of home blood glucose monitoring (HBGM) by people with diabetes mellitus or hypoglycemia.
