Abstract

           While taking care of diabetic patients with dietary control, activities such as oral medication, insulin injection, and exercise can help the patients to better control blood glucose levels. Painless self-monitoring of blood glucose at finger sites is also an option to help control blood glucose levels in terms of following up hemoglobin A1c without waiting for the medical appointment. However, self-monitoring of blood glucose levels needs frequent reviews and practices in order to be able to self-monitor effectively. Thus, creating a video clip to teach self-monitoring blood glucose levels via the LINE application will help patients with diabetes and caregivers to have chances to review, practice, and be able to keep blood glucose levels under control.

           This academic review is shown about diabetes, knowledge for assessing and monitoring blood glucose levels, the essence of self-monitoring blood glucose levels, interpretations and problems of self-monitoring blood glucose levels, a concept and theory with developing and producing the video. The contents of creating a video clip for teaching were composed of 1) the use of a painless self-monitoring device of blood glucose at the finger site, 2) self-monitoring of blood glucose test with an insulin pen, 3) techniques of monitoring blood glucose levels, 4) recording and interpreting glucose level, and 5) solving problems of abnormal blood glucose levels. Patients with diabetes are able to improve their knowledge and skills of assessing and following up on blood glucose levels by themselves effectively and safely. Moreover, they can also prevent themselves from diabetes complications.
