Yes. You Glucometer are freely available with you can check sugar at home. They cost anywhere between 1000 to 5000 rupees. They use testing strips that cost around 20 to 30 rupees per strip. They are useful for day to day diabetes management.

You can also order them online from certain websites.

Hope this was helpful.
