Author information

Watanabe Clinic, Nishinomiya 662-0971.


To improve the guidance for medical care of patients with diabetes, a system for certified diabetes educators in Japan has been started. Self-monitoring of blood glucose is a guidance service conducted for the treatment of diabetes performed by medical technologists. This approach is effective in motivating patients to perform self-control, and guidance that is useful for the improvement of patients' lifestyle as well as instruction of the operation of measurement apparatus is required. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to give a guidance in stages corresponding to the condition of the patient. Medical technologists will be able to participate in team treatment of diabetes by giving such guidance.
