Blood glucose test strips ultra one touch

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test strips ultra one touch


Avatar n tn Okay - I was happy with my One Touch Ultra. Yes, it failed to pipe up enough blood sometimes resulting in a wasted strip. Yes, the 1 mu thing is a marketing gimmick since it still wants 3 mu of blood or the strip won't fill and you get an error. But - I learned its qwirks and got used to it.
Avatar f tn Does the Ultra mini hurt when using it? I've read that the lancet can be painful. Also, what do you think about testing on the forearm instead of the finger?
Avatar n tn So if you're feeling low, you're supposed to test your finger, because that will be more accurate for that moment. My daughter uses the One Touch Ultra, and she has had no problems with it. When she goes in for her quarterly exams, the numbers in her meter seem consistent with the A1C numbers. Does anyone else out there have advice on meters?
Avatar f tn You are the only one who has told me what HIGH on a glucose monitor reads. You see my son's reading read "HIGH" at the doctor's office, then 3 hours later I checked his sugar level again and it still would not give me a number. It continued to read "HIGH" till the next afternoon when it read 375. My son just found out he is diabetic. I was so worried because the doctor sent him home without any medications or insulin for his diabetes.
Avatar m tn Thank you very much for the advise. iuse ultra one touch . isnt it a good one.I have one more doubt. You said home meters are said to havea 20% variantion in accuracy. does it mean the meter shows 20% less or 20% more in the value when compared to lab result? idnt understand. kindly enlighten on the issue.I f the Fasting sample gives a result of 112 , does it mean the lab test result will be more than this or less than this.
Avatar n tn Should I get a blood test? It feels pointless because it sounds like no one else has had any luck. It is driving me mad not knowing. It is nice to come on here and see that others are having the same prob. Helo if you can.
Avatar n tn As a long term Diabetic 2, I have been using quite a few brands:Free Style, One Touch, and lately the ReliOn sold at WalMart. I think the Relion is the better of all. It's least expensive, at least it's much cheaper than the most popular One Touch, and its lancet system gives me the least pain and it requires the least amount of my blood sample as little as the Freestyle do.
Avatar f tn I've recently been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes and started testing my blood glucose at home with the One Touch Ultra 2 monitor. The test strips that I've been given are pre-coded, so I do not have to do anything to my monitor prior to testing, other than insert the strip.
1324377 tn?1274735941 So I read through the manual that came with the test unit (One Touch Ultra Mini) and learned how to do a 'Controlled Solution Test' to make sure the test strips and meter were working properly. The 'Test Strip Control Range' (as shown on the vial they're kept in) is 97-129mg/dl. Well the result I got from the 'Controlled Solution Test' was 273mg/dl, obviously way out of the test strip range.
125112 tn?1217277462 -) Accucheck is good. I use One Touch Ultra but any of them are good (and reliable). Aside from the monitor and test strips you will need a lancet (a finger poker) but many of the large brands come with all of it together in a kit. The only down side is, if you don't have a prescription, your insurance won't cover it. Usually this isn't a problem with the monitors because of the great rebates but the strips can run you roughly $100 for a package of 100.
Avatar f tn 's office to ask for some test strips. My (deceased) husband was a diabetic, and I have his One Touch Ultra. I will try taking my blood sugars and try to see if I can get some better results. Thank you. Is there a way to do this though without wreaking my fingers with sticks? My fingers are very sensitive, and are always in use (piano and computer keyboard). I was thinking of testing to see if the Metformin really had any effect on my blood sugars.
Avatar m tn Urine analyses, and two blood cultures to test for fungal and bacterial infections in blood. Swab tests for bacteria/fungi in mouth. Was determined eye was a 'mild viral infection' by opthamologist. Ultrasounded testicles with no find. Blood tests revealed that I was 'exceedingly healthy' as well, in the midst of the worst I have ever felt in my life.
162948 tn?1205256292 also and i know this for a fact as this happened to me march of 2006 when i found out i was pregnant with my one year old i had negative tests on cheap hpt's the cheaper ones only pick up the higher amounts of hcg where as if you pay the extra it picks up from 10 rather than 20ml of hcg it could be that you have a low dose of hcg and it is not picking it up try getting a blood test, if the blood test is negative then put it down to stress.
1160836 tn?1332333769 Now if your late a least a week late from AF you should test but due a blood test with your doc just to make sure. I wish you luck and I hope its that your with child....SSBD and welcome to the clomid family..
1294995 tn?1330666336 I'll probably test on July 14 (next Wednesday) and if it's negative, get a blood test to confirm and start the process overrrrrr! Man oh man do I hope for a Spring baby! It's interesting to me because I always said that when we do try I would want to get prego the end of July or beginning of August so that I could have a Spring/Summer baby and that time is just right around the corner!!! (ha! When I thought that I would have a choice and not struggle with conceiving!
280700 tn?1210287416 I have just received my blood test results for my test on cd21, and they detected ovulation, first time ever. Now on cd 27, and it's my first round of clomid, took 100mg on cd 2 to 6 inclusive.
1647691 tn?1363727302 Hi ladies, So I am 9 days post embryo transfer and my blood test date is scheduled for this coming Monday, but I got very curious:( and anxious! and took the HPT. the result is negative:( is that it? I guess I didn't make it, did I? Did this happen to anyone and turned out it was just too early to test? Anything anyone????? PS.
Avatar m tn Also---my doctor has put me on lisinopril even though I don't have high blood pressure, he said this is a ACE inhibitor and will protect my kidneys. I have read BAD reviews on this medicine and I'm not sure what to do. I told my doctor yesterday that I was leery about taking this, but he seems to think this is a good medication to take.
Avatar f tn Both my sisters now have breast tissue under their underarms and both hate the way it looks. They both had it checked out and the doc told them it was harmless. One sister though has been complaining that it hurts her when she is close to getting her AF so shes going back to the doc to possibly have it removed.
Avatar m tn i tried everything, one thing that DOES at least wash loose ones down my body is Kerosene. i found this out when i thought it was scabies, i used kero on my hair and guess what happened... i ended up with 50 bites on my chest and about 30 on each lower leg/ankles. whatever it is, KEROSENE will paralyze it long enough to move off my scalp.
Avatar n tn Then I finally went to the Doc's who tested me for STIs and I also had a blood test for HIV/AIDS and all tests came back clear but confirmed that what I had was a yeast infection. The Doc prescribed the single tab (200mg) and some cream and the infection did subside after a week or so. I felt much much better for a months, but it came back again!!! But I think I have found the solution. Most people say you should not use harsh soaps in that area and I never did and I do agree.
393685 tn?1425816122 The 6 month course costs £460 but before you can start the course they send you off to have a full blood test that requires you to not eat or drink anything except water for 12 hrs. My test came back with low thyroid levels so i had to go to my GP at that time ( i have since moved address so my GP changed ). My GP informed me that i had hypothroidism and the bad news was i was going to be taking medication for the rest of my living life and the good news was it was FREE YIPeee !!!!.
Avatar n tn Today I went back to my docotrs...well they did a blood test last week, and I got the results today! I have Peptic Ulcer Disease...they do a bllod test to see if you have the bacteria H Pylori and mine was positive! Just something for you to look into! I wish you all the luck in the world! I know how horrible it is in to live with all those symptoms! I suffered for 3 years till today! I only pray that this will end it all for me!!?
503727 tn?1210442710 Hi I still can remember the first time I had a panic attack I was so scared I was going to die I was working on my computer and suddenly I start having this feeling that I was going to pass out, the thing that might have triggered the panic attacks was that I felt like I was going to have an epilepsy attack I had epilepsy when I was 5 and I was in a very strict treatment until I was like 12 after that no problems but the time I had my first panic attack I was working on my computer on that very
Avatar n tn I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue. I am having a very hard time finding any info on any one with this happening to them and the risks to me or my unborn child. I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03). Please tell me where I can find more info or who to contact. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar n tn Just like many of you, I went to the doctor about three weeks ago and the first thing she said also was Herpes.She took a blood test and a normal pap and I still haven't received any results yet.At first I was pretty sure it was going to end up being Herpes but when I read the first comment posted and it sounded identical to mine, that made me feel a lot better.
961574 tn?1462909130 That is AWESOME that you got pregnant with twins! Congratulations! I'm due June 7, but will probably be induced a few days before then, since I'm on blood thinning medication. At least that's what they did last time when I had my daughter. This time's it's a boy! Found out early at my 15 week appointment. I'll be 18 weeks tomorrow.
Avatar n tn I am 64 years old, have been married three times and looked at porn on and off over the past 30 years. I have always been in a loving relationship with all of my partners, never had a one night stand in my life, when my first wife and I broke up I met another woman that I lived with for seven months, it took me two weeks before I could achieve an orgasm, I had the same problem with every partner after that.
