Frequently Asked QuestionsQ. Can blood sugar strips be reused?
- Always discuss your results with a registered medical practitioner
No. Blood glucose test strips are for single use only. Do not reuse a test strip, as it may not provide the appropriate results. It is strongly advised to always discard a test strip after every 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 best ways to manage diabetes. It can help you to test your blood glucose at any time of the day and anywhere. Using a portable glucometer is the best way to test glucose when travelling. Charting of blood glucose levels becomes easy with glucometers, especially with devices having memory options to store previous readings. These on-time blood glucose monitors can help you to keep your blood glucose level in check and better manage diabetes. Q. What is a normal glucometer reading?
According to the American Diabetes Association, the fasting or preprandial blood glucose levels for people with diabetes should lie between the range of 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?
Diabetes devices or glucometers test the amount of glucose in the blood. The test strips present in glucometers contain an enzyme called glucose oxidase. This enzyme reacts with glucose in the blood and sends the result as an electronic signal 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 (pre and post-meals, 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. Therefore, it would be best to consult your doctor about how often you should test your blood glucose.Warranty Info (if applicable)
