Abstract

Blood glucose monitoring is important in optimizing long-term outcomes in diabetic patients. Reliance on near-patient testing and the use of longer term measures of glycation are the current cornerstones. However, as this review details, there are significant problems using blood tests as measures of metabolic control in uremic diabetic patients.
