Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is one of the two primary techniques available for health providers and patients to assess the effectiveness of the management plan on glycemic control in diabetes. SMBG is typically carried out in the form of frequent finger stick capillary glucose testing. Another more recent technology available is continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) carried out through a sensor that measures interstitial glucose concentration which correlates well with plasma glucose and capillary glucose levels. The second glycemic control technique is measurement of hemoglobin A1C (Hb A1C). Measurement of Hb A1C is the most accurate glycemic control tool available and it is important to correlate Hb A1C results with analysis obtained using self monitoring blood-glucose (SMBG) for long-term metabolic control and management of diabetes. Recently, the international multicenter A1C-Derived Average Glucose (ADAG) trial successfully completed and results determined that the correlation between Hb A1C results and eAG (the new term used to combine both continuous glucose monitoring and finger stick capillary glucose testing) is strong enough to justify reporting of both an Hb A1c results and eAG result
