Blood glucose kit manufacturers usa

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose kit manufacturers usa


194838 tn?1303428544 I do not test my own blood but am sent to the hospital for fairly regular tests but notice that when people post with their blood glucose levels they are in the 100s. I am from the UK and wonder if there is a conversion chart because I think it would be more beneficial if I could compare with others on the forum to get a sense of how im doing for comparison, Any advise would be greatly appreciated .
920032 tn?1550680156 Your posted numbers imply readings measured in mmol/L. This standard is used in Europe not in the USA. When posting test numbers it's important to let us know which standard you are using. Makes a huge difference. Did your home test meter come with a User Guide? Most do which explains how to correctly use the meter. If not you can always Google the make and model number as most manufacturers post "How To" guides online.
Avatar f tn my husband was 2yrs post liver transplant, that is the one reason why he is also now suffering from monitor blood sugar problem. my question now is about fluctition of his blood glucose, we have a kit monitoring it before and after meal, but there was time when we check it is high then after just a minute it drop down, we are really worried why is this happening? hoping that anyone could help!
1330182 tn?1279815900 I was debating purchasing a blood spot test kit online, but I was unsure of how accurate the results would be..
Avatar m tn The numbers I believe are dependent on the manufacturers kit. If it is Herpeselect then it could be considered a low positive. The only real way to appreciate if you have a recent infection is to have a negative followed by a strong positive at a subsequent test with potentially low to mid range values in between. Reaching conclusions from a single test is very difficult. How could this happen?
Avatar n tn I've been prescribed and taking Suboxone for approximately 30 days and have noticed a significant increase in my blood glucose level. I've asked my pharmacist for her opinion but she knows very little about the topic. I haven't asked my shrink yet but will at my next appointment. In the meantime, this has me spooked. Anyone know???
Avatar f tn A week later the surgeon repeated the tests to prepare me for surgery. The glucose level was 86 which was normal since the range used was 65-99. Three days ago my blood was drawn an hour or less after eating. The results once again read the glucose level of 115 which was high since the range used was 65-99. No one in my family has diabetes. I will see my pcp in a few days. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn Are you concerned about the upward trend in your readings? If so, assuming that you did the testing with a "home" blood glucose meter, and that you tested at the same time each day, your readings are well within the accuracy range of the meter.
Avatar m tn My real question is can Terri Warren help get a WB test kit out of USA? If not can she put a note on her website For USA customers only! Ive spent a fair amount of time getting to almost sched an appointment with her including giving my credit card info to a company that in the end may be able to sched the appointment but Terri will not be able to help get a test kit sent to Canada..this information would have been useful.
267076 tn?1270674331 About a month ago I went to the ER with bad headaches. They did a blood test and I just found out that my glucose was 141. That seems high to me but they never said anything about it (I wasn't fasting). Is that diabetic range? Should I be concerned about having diabetes? It seems odd to me that a year ago it was in the 90's but a month ago it was 141. I had a complete blood work done last week (after fasting) so I'll see what it is when I get the results.
961466 tn?1247550382 I would be asking your Dr for the glucagon kit so that you can rectify your wife's lows when she is not able to. Using glucose tablets, even glucose syrup plus calling an ambulance when you need to is important. Its one thing to think you're okay or try to ignore the problems but you are obviously worried. I don't mean to appear rude but does your wife deal okay with actually having diabetes?
Avatar f tn I just received a call from the OB/GYN nurse that said the doctor wants to put me on 750mg of Metformin because my (I think) blood glucose levels was too high. I asked her what was the normal range and she said 0.0 - 24 and mine was a 27.8. What does that mean? She also said that my Vitamin D levels was low and that I needed to take a supplement that contains 5,000IU's daily in it. I was pretty much left like that. Not a whole lot of explanation or nothing!
Avatar f tn Some studies show that manufacturers have falsely represented the accuracy of home test kits. One test kit cited in the warning was the EZ Medtest HIV Type I and Type II Home Test Kit, which was unable to consistently detect HIV antibodies in HIV-positive blood samples. Companies that have been cited for illegal production and distribution of HIV home test kits include: Akers Laboratories; Chembio Diagnostic Systems, Inc; Pan Probe Biotech, Inc; and Sovo Tec Diagnostics, Inc.
519736 tn?1253986826 Blood sugar and glucose in a round about way are synonymous. Blood sugar is used more often than glucose for the simple reason this is what is heard or read most often when diabetes is mentioned. Insulin is produced by your pancreas to allow glucose from your blood to be absorbed by cells in your liver, muscles and fat to be used for your bodies energy needs. It does more but I won't get into that. A thyroid disorder will affect your blood sugar levels too.
Avatar f tn if it is possible that there are HIV virus present in a HIV home test kit (blood & serum) like the HIV virus on the Micro pippette, Lancet, Cassette or in the Biluent ? whatever with mark of the test kit, if it is possible? so when people do the hiv test at home, they may be infected by hiv?
Avatar m tn Also l bought a Dus 10 urine strp home test kit . If the result is the colour blue its normal, green means some glucose and brown colour means a high level, When l wake up in the morning l got a green or light green, but during the day l took two tests and got normal blue. Could meals or food affect the result.
Avatar n tn Hello, does anyone know a website or where I can purchase a saliva test kit? A reliable one? I'm not getting much help from google search. :/ Thank You.
Avatar m tn Are the current rapid test kit available in the market today and usa fda approved (i.e. abbott determine hiv 1/2) will able to detect anti-bodies even in such rare cases hiv type Group N? I raised this question because on inverness medical website abbott determine hiv 1/2 does not indicate their that it also covers HIV GROUP N. Mr. Teak who is very helpful to me in guiding me in this site. Please if anybody knows what is really about. Can you please explain to me.
Avatar n tn The measurements listed were in USA mg/dl. I was told that my range needed to be 90-110. The glucose tablets were a nurse practitioner's suggestion. I only take one if it is absolutely necessary, like when I go below 70, but for the most part, I just try to eat something. She also told me that she doesn't want me to eliminate all carbs, due to the fact that I could lose weight. I will request the HbgA1c test on my next visit.

Avatar m tn Most of the drugs sold by Canadian internet pharmacies are drugs that were made in the USA, and have simply been sold to Canadian distributors. Some of these drugs are manufactured by Canadian manufacturers. But rather than publish a buyers guide for Americans and allowing us to buy our drugs from "certified Canadian pharmacies", they make the whole practice illegal to increase the profitability of the American drug industry.
