Abstract

INTRODUCTION. Diabetological societies of many countries recommend profiting from portable devices to monitoring of the glucose level, as very useful tools to the self-observation of diabetes. Independently from certain controversy regarding the precision of glucometers they are universally used as the base to modification of medicines doses.
MATERIAL AND METHODS. The influence of common sources of electromagnetic fields (personal computer, cellular phone, and microwave oven) for measuring precision of three glucometers: Glucotrend (Roche Diagnostics®), One Touch (Lifescan®) and Precision QID (Medisense®), was examined.
RESULTS. All tested glucometers did not show the essential differences of the results in basic circumstances (control test) and during when were surrendered to activity of investigated electromagnetic fields.
CONCLUSIONS. The influence of investigated electromagnetic fields on the precision of tested glucometers was not confirmed.
