Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test kit home


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.
194838 tn?1303428544 Yes, there is a difference in the numbers. In The USA test results are presented in mg/dl [milligrams per deciliter]. In the UK test results are presented in mmol/l [millimoles per litre]. Here is a link to a blood sugar mg/dl to/from mmol/l converter Here is an A1c chart referencing mg/dl vs mmol/l Here are the fasting glucose ranges Normal 70-99 mg/dl or 3.888-5.
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 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!
Avatar f tn In December it was 7.3 with a diet! Well I did a home test today (got the kit at Walmart for $30.00 for 2 tests) and my test showed my A1c @ 6.4. I have been eating mostly fish and taking Cinnamin supplements, Vit D, but just haven't had time to go get a blood test done *(didn't want to take time off of work)* so I invested in an A1c home test. I was so happy that my A1c went down from 7.3 to 6.4! I am hoping to even lower my A1c more!
Avatar f tn Would it be possible to contract any kind of blood to blood illness from a test kit like this? It looked fairly clean but I have no idea where it came from really (apart from China) and that's what concerns me. What do you think?
Avatar f tn I'm a little sad that I didn't pass my glucose test yesterday now I gotta go back for the 3 hour test I pray that I score in the passing levels come Monday...has anyone else had to take the test twice??
519736 tn?1253986826 The black coffee 8-12 hours prior to a blood sugar test will skewer test results. That was a no-no. If your Endo was not told about the "black coffee" he/she is going by your test result and why you were informed of "becoming insulin resistant". As I said earlier, you may or may not be prediabetic. A follow up test is necessary. Before venturing on let's clarify some terms. Blood sugar and glucose in a round about way are synonymous.
Avatar n tn Home Access is not a home test kit, it's a home collection kit.
Avatar m tn I did a mirates home test that was negative and I used the pipette they give you to collect blood ,on instructions it says dont squeeze it which I did by mistake and am now worried there may be a reason they said this and maybe it can infect me by squeezing something this irrational!
306245 tn?1244384967 It is a simple blood test and can be done by any Dr. and I believe that you can buy a home test kit at any pharmacy to do it yourself. Though I think if you go this route you have to sent the sample to a lab and wait for results - same as the Dr. only cheaper. Second test is a GTT (Glucose Tolerance Test). This is a longer test that measures your blood sugar levels before during and after consuming specific levels of Glucose over a specific period of time.
Avatar n tn I believe you asked about HYPOglycemia: The symptoms are vary varied and might include dizziness, feeling generally out of it, fatigue, irritability, disorientation, tingling. Testing is the key as if your numbers have been high for awhile you will feel low even if you're not. You should treat any lows below 60 (some treat below 70) with a couple glucose tablets. You will learn the correct number for you.
Avatar f tn I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
212161 tn?1599427282 So do you test fasting glucose in the morning occationaly with a home meter? Is this as accurate for a fasting glucose test as going to the dr 's lab? I think I need to get one of these home testers.
1330182 tn?1279815900 Hello! Has anyone used the at home test kits for checking thyroid blood levels? I was thinking of purchasing one :) I am not going to be able to get to the doctor for a few weeks so I am hoping that the test kit will give me some peace of mind for now lol! Thanks!
Avatar f tn My doc just called and I did not pass the 1-hour glucose test so now I have to go back for the 3-hour! Has this happened to anybody? Anyone know what happens if I have the diabetes you get with pregnancy? Ugh!
Avatar n tn I have used a HIV home test kit for HIV1 and 2 as it says that I bought online ,the test result came negative can I rely on that result as it says if the result is negative it is definitive and if positive it can be a false positive . Do I need to do another lab test ?
Avatar m tn Home Access is not a test kit it is a collection kit.
Avatar n tn I have purchased a hiv blood rapid test kit and carried out test at home. As I read the instruction on the kit, I know that on the blood collecting sample area on the kit, there is HIV virus antigen, which will react with the HIV antibody in finger blood (if exist) to further process. Q1. Are the rapid test result taken on 90 days post exposure conclusive? Q2. If my bloody finger with wound (cut) touch the sample area (with antigen) of the test kit, will I be infected by the HIV virus? Q3.
Avatar n tn whats a collection kit might i ask?
Avatar f tn 0 they will then ask you to drink a 500ml bottle of Lucozade in one go, you need to wait for two hours and then have a blood test done. This blood test will determine how your body is absorbing the glucose, if it returns to 6 or below your body is fine but around 8+is considered an intolerance and 10+ is considered Diabetic. Mine came back at 8.8 so am considered intolerant, but no action has been taken just advised a good healthy diet.
Avatar m tn I do not have much info about home access HIV test kit, but I can tell you that any test after 3 months well be conclusive
Avatar n tn If you are not comfortable and exibit the signs of pregnancy go to the health department and get a blood pregnancy test done. The blood test is much more sensitive to the pregnancy hormone then the urin one will ever be. Plus there is less a chance for a human error.
