It is very important to know how to use a test strip.
The glucose meter will give you a blood sugar reading within seconds.
You can only use a test strip only one time. That means you’ll have to take out a new one every time to check your blood sugar. The doctor tells you how often to check. It may be 10 times a day if you have type 1 diabetes. Or it may be only two times a day if you have type 2 diabetes.
It is very common that glucose meters are not accurate everytime. Sometimes it varies depending on the conditions of your body.
It shows that the accuracy of diabetes test strips can vary. Scientists tested the accuracy of the 18 blood glucose monitoring systems in several.
Some of the findings are as follows:
Blood glucose meter readings to be within 15% of the lab’s measurements 95% of the time, or 19 times out of 20 and it is good news for all. And all of the new studies must have a minimum 350 people with diabetes, more than originally required.
Put a test strip into the blood glucometer. Prick fingertips with the meter’s tiny needle. Squeeze out a blood drop and touch it with the edge of the test strip.
