Measurement of blood sugar and cholesterol

Blood glucose is the value of the concentration of glucose in the blood.

The determination of blood glucose is carried out with portable devices (so-called  glucometers) that perform the check, in a few seconds, on a drop of capillary blood taken from the fingertip by puncturing a lancet: this allows diabetics to better control the disease with less onset of complications.

Cholesterolemia refers to the concentration of cholesterol in the blood, which can be normal or give rise to hypocholesterolemia and hypercholesterolemia, conditions that are potentially dangerous to health.
