Information about Accu-Chek Active Test Strip

Accu-Chek Active Test Strip
It helps in determining the blood sugar level in the body. It facilitates hassle-free usage as it does not require any manual coding. The kit includes Accu-Chek Active strips that can be used until the expiration date printed on the pack. These sugar strips absorb blood easily and show reliable results in a few seconds. The Accu-Chek strips are available in packs of 10, 25, and 50 strips.

FAQs related to Accu-Chek Active Test Strips:

Q. Can blood sugar strips be reused?

No. All blood glucose test strips are for single use only. Re-using a test strip may not provide you with appropriate results. Hence, it is strongly advised to always discard the test strip after use. 

Q. What are the benefits of glucometers?

It is well known that testing blood glucose levels with a glucometer at home is one of the major pillars of diabetes management. It can help you to test your blood glucose anywhere, at any time of the day. Using a portable glucometer is the best way to test glucose when traveling. Charting of blood glucose levels becomes easy with glucometers especially with devices having memory options to store previous readings. By helping you to keep your blood glucose level in check, blood glucose monitors can help you manage diabetes better. 

Q. What is a normal glucometer reading?

According to the American Diabetes Association, the fasting or preprandial blood glucose levels for diabetics should be between 80 – 130 mg/dl and postprandial (1-2 hours after meals) should be less than 180 mg/dl. However, the range mentioned in your glucose monitor may be a little different. So, you need to speak to your doctor to calibrate the results with your lab reports.

Q. How do blood glucose monitors work?

The diabetes devices or glucometers test the amount of glucose in the blood. The test strips present in glucometers contain an enzyme called glucose oxidase, which reacts with glucose in the blood and sends the result as an electronic signal, which is displayed on the monitor.

Q. How often should you test your blood glucose with a glucometer?

If you have type 1 diabetes, you may need to check your blood glucose levels several times a day such as before and after meals and before and after exercise or as advised by your doctor. Whereas, if you have type 2 diabetes, the frequency of monitoring your sugar levels might be based on the severity of the condition which can be several times a day, once a day, or thrice a week. Hence, talk to your doctor about how often you should test your blood glucose.
