blood sugar level


Explanation:
If your translation is for lay people (i.e. users of the glucometer) then I would leave it as "blood sugar level" or even "blood sugar reading". If the audience for your translation is medical personnel, then "glucometry" would be a valid option.

Reference information:
This question was already answered in the KudoZ forum. I'm not sure why they refer to "glucometer" as well.
