1305767 tn?1361192676 Before stating whether you are in danger of diabetes, or you are normal it would be nice to know the make/model and age of your meter. Age of the test strips, if you are within the expiration date of the test strips, and whether the meter requires calibration prior to use. Knowing the aforementioned helps to determine if your test results qualify or not.
Avatar f tn s interesting that you question the accuracy of your glucose meter for I was reading the September 2008 issues of Consumer Reports that rated both blood-pressure monitors and blood-glucose meters. Only one blood-glucose meter scored excellent overall and also scored the highest for consistency- the Johnson & Johnson Lifescan OneTouch Ultra Mini. The Ultra Mini was followed by Ascensia Contour, ReliOn Ultima (WalMart), and Accu-check Compact Plus.

Avatar m tn I did something really dumb today and now I'm scared. I was unclogging a toilet when some of the water splashed my hands. I have open wounds on my hands. When I looked down into the toilet I saw some used blood glucose test strips. I didn't see any blood. I immediately washed my hands with plenty of soap. About 1-3 minutes later I washed my hands again 3 times. About 10 minutes after that I washed my hands twice more and disinfected them with alcohol.
Avatar n tn Is there any other things other than glucose meter to check glucose levels ??? ( Without test strips ). Which would cost only very less as the laboratory charges me .
Avatar n tn where can I buy mylife pura blood glucose test strips in Melbourne thanks
Avatar m tn I wasn't able to do any blood tests today because I'm still waiting on my new Ascensia Contour to arrive in the mail. My insurance stopped covering the test strips for my freestyle freedom. A little word from the company would have been nice so I could have ordered before I was on my last three strips. I basically had to eat based on what I felt like. I hope I was able to keep my control and find out if I did hopefully tomorrow morning.
Avatar n tn Thanks to both of you. As far as I know, the meter is OK and the test strips are well within expiration. The doctor is very, very hesitant to write a prescription for test strips, so I buy them. It's absurb because with my insurance I could test four times a day free. As it is now, I really hoard the test strips. Yes, I try to watch the carbs and sugars, though I fell off the wagon during the Christmas days and that's probably why I'm showing the higher numbers.

Avatar f tn I am not familiar with these two brand names but as a general statement, the best way to assess blood glucose levels is by using a human glucometer and test strips and not checking the urine. Urine glucose levels fluctuate significantly and then as the urine collects and sits in the bladder, everything gets mixed together. So essentially the urine glucose level is like an average over many hours. Your vet can show you how to easily collect a drop of blood from your cat.
866901 tn?1505506236 In googling "blood glucose test strips", I found several websites which offered test strips and glucometers at varying prices (ie.http://www.diabetesnet.com/test_strips.php). Since your cat is going to need lifelong care, it will pay for you to shop around.
Avatar f tn If a person with HIV accidentally gets his/her blood on the meter or the test strips (supplies) is it possible to catch HIV this way when putting your blood in contact with the test strips (supplies)? Hope this makes sense but I just would like assurance. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Went to Quest Logics to do a A1C blood test which is for glucose.
Avatar f tn If repeated testing is required, buying the test strips in bulk may be beneficial. Some stores may offer strips at a reduced rate. You could discuss with a pharmacist as to what would be the most suitable option. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

5536886 tn?1455827346 How did you choose which blood glucose monitor to use? Are there certain features that make one better then the other?
141598 tn?1355671763 Not a question - LifeScan is voluntarily removing and offering to replace 25-count OneTouch Ultra Blood Glucose Test Strips with lot number 2829235. They are replacing them because they have learned a very small number of vials could produce inaccurate results. If you are in possession of this lot # discontinue their use and call LifeScan @ 866.247.1281 for free replacement strips.
Avatar f tn If your fasting glucose is higher than 125 you are actually diabetic. If you get a blood glucose tolerance test your glucose level should be below 200 one - two hours after the test...
Avatar n tn By reusing a glucose test strip they would not get an accurate read on your blood glucose because blood from the previous test would still be on the strip. That fact is common knowledge regardless of what country you are in so despite your suspicions I still do not think you have any cause for concern. If you consult with the hospital who perfomed the test I'm sure they will explain in detail why they cannot resuse test strips.
