Methods A total of 15 subjects, were selected from the department of oral medicine/periodontics Al-Badar Dental College, Gulbarga. Blood samples were collected from venous, gingival and finger-prick, and analyzed by glucose oxidase method, and also by using commercially available glucometer. Results The present study shows that highly significant positive correlation between the venous blood glucose and gingival, finger prick and laboratory values of blood glucose. Conclusion Gingival blood collected during diagnostic periodontal examination may be an excellent source of blood for glucometric analysis.
