Abstract: Alternative site testing options for capillary blood glucose measurement have been widely examined for their viability and accuracy to substitute the fingertip as the usual testing site. This research compared the blood glucose determination test results from the fingertip and the proposed alternative test site, which is the earlobe. Systematic bias was observed in the 30-minute and one-hour postprandial glucose level of earlobe testing. Accuracy of blood glucose taken from earlobe was observed only at two hours postprandial glucose level.
