BLOOD SUGAR TESTING

 

By: John Kasprak, Senior Attorney

"current technology is such that blood glucose is a minor invasive procedure. The values obtained from such testing are used to design and evaluate the diabetes treatment plan. The frequency of routine testing is determined by the student's health care team and may vary from student to student. Unscheduled or non-routine blood glucose tests must be done on an as-needed basis for students with diabetes who are suspected to be hypoglycemic (have a low blood glucose level) or hyperglycemic (have an elevated blood glucose level).
