A. No, these blood glucose test strips are designed for single use only. Reusing a test strip may provide inaccurate results, so it is essential to discard each strip after use.
Q. What are the benefits of using a glucometer?
A. Using a glucometer allows you to conveniently and accurately test your blood glucose levels at home or while traveling. It helps regulate blood sugar levels and provides a way to monitor glucose levels effectively, including storing previous readings.
Q. What is considered a normal glucometer reading?
A. The American Diabetes Association recommends fasting or preprandial blood glucose levels between 80-130 mg/dl for diabetics, and postprandial levels (1-2 hours after meals) less than 180 mg/dl. However, consult your doctor to calibrate the results with lab reports and understand the specific range suggested by your glucose monitor.
Q. How do blood glucose monitors work?
A. Blood glucose monitors, such as glucometers, utilize test strips containing an enzyme called glucose oxidase. This enzyme reacts with glucose in the blood and sends an electronic signal to the monitor, displaying the result.
Q. How often should blood glucose levels be tested with a glucometer?
A. For type 1 diabetes, blood glucose levels should be tested several times a day, including before and after meals, exercise, and as advised by the doctor. Type 2 diabetes monitoring frequency may vary based on severity, ranging from several times a day to once a day or thrice a week. Consult your doctor for personalized testing recommendations.
