Common Questions and Answers about Onetouch horizon blood glucose monitor review


Avatar f tn When you have an actual average glucose obtained with OneTouch or other meter, the following formula will give an indicated A1C. (Actual average glucose + 2.52)/1.583/100 This should be used to compare to your actual A1C obtained from the lab.
5536886 tn?1455827346 How did you choose which blood glucose monitor to use? Are there certain features that make one better then the other?
Avatar f tn Hello! I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. I assume by your 'machine' you mean the glucose meter? The most common reason for such swings in glucose scores is because of residue on your fingers when you test. Make sure you wash your hands well, with particular focus on your fingers, using a non-perfumey soap. Perfume soaps have extra alcohols in them which can cause your blood sugars to falsely show as being high.
Avatar n tn I too, as a mom of a diabetic teen, am very anxious to have a non-invasive blood glucose monitor be approved for use (besides the Gluco-watch. I checked some internet sites and none that I could find had any new information. If you are interested in being in a study, contact your endocrinologist to see if you would be a candidate to be in one. Perhaps they could point you in the direction of finding an open study somewhere. Also, Joslin Diabetes Center may be a good place to check.
Avatar n tn I saw where LifeTrac finished beta Testing a glucose meter that doesn't use blood or isn't a continous meter like the GlucoWatch. Is this real or just some Internet Hoax? Life without pricking would be nice ....
Avatar n tn I had blood sugar problems in my first few months and had to use one of those OneTouch glucose meters every day... everything turned out fine and I am no longer having to use it. I'm sure you'll be okay, too!
Avatar n tn I was put on a beta blocker, which helped a lot, and posed a very low risk to the baby (low birth weight, and low blood glucose levels are a possibility, but my daughter was fine). If your EKG and your heart structure and function are normal then you don't need to worry! No need to think of terminating the pregnancy. The worst part of it all is the anxiety it can cause you when you have symptoms, or even just worrying about it.
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.
Avatar n tn 1 and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on Feb. 5th. I have an ultra touch 2 monitor for her. I did notice that they have a software for it in which I can download and monitor her levels, etc. I also have noticed that there is a diabetes pilot software in which I can get for my desktop and pda. I like the fact that the diabetes pilot has a list of foods (carbs, etc.) that you can enter for reference and can be used on my pda.
Avatar n tn At dinner I ate lasagna, salad, sweet tea. Anyway 30-45 minutes after dinner, my blood sugar was 118. Is this normal or does it seem kind of high? At the doctor last year fasting it was 91. Also, I have been suffereing from severe fatigue after my long runs and have to basically sit down for the rest of the day which I hate. I am going to start to check my blood sugar after these runs to see what it is. I eat alot after the long runs but it does not seem to help.
Avatar m tn One month later i bought OneTouch Ultra Glucose meter. Though I have controlled a lot on my sugar intake, the sugar level always comes in between 100 and 120. Does eating sugar added food cause diabetes ? Why was not my sugar level not coming below 100 even after my food was controlled. I do not take regualar exercise. I have 177cm tall and weighs about 76 Kg. Am I overweight to develop diabetes ?Could you pls let me know how can I reduce my glucose levels below 100 or to a safer level ?
Avatar m tn And, 2-3 hours after eating [postprandial] when glucose [blood sugar] is at its highest point. The first is to get a baseline to work off, the second to see what foods you consumed does to your glucose level and what you can and should not eat. "where do I need to be using his # " Huh? Are you asking what numbers are considered normal ranges? These are: prandial = 70-99 mg/dl or 3.8-5.5 mmol/l postprandial = <180 mg/dl in most cases <10.
Avatar n tn I wasn't for sure where to post this question, but I know that the people on this site are a great resource for similar experiences. I am a 20 year old female, 5'8" 110 pounds (skinny, I know) and I don't have medical insurance, but was given an oral glucose tolerance test through the health department. I am a college student who works full-time, and I will have insurance when I graduate.
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.
798555 tn?1292787551 'to slow absorption of glucose entering your blood stream' - never knew about the 'speed' of absorbion of glucose. Doctors never explain anything anymore. I am very well versed on thyroid after years of suffering on the wrong med for my situation and now I get to learn more new info that was never explained to me before about glucose. Doc just said 'eat a health diet and exercise' - how vague! And that is clearly not working for me as good as I need it to.
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!
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar n tn I reread your last post and I was somewhat off in my response. My question would be who is performing your father's glucose and blood pressure testing if he is unable to? Who then inputs the data so it can be uploaded to the "monitoring centre"? It does matter whether the doctor will accept this type of information from a third party. I know mine won't but every doctor is different and has different guidelines/policies.
Avatar n tn I use the one touch meter and when i got my pump the sent me a bd one that links with my pump. but when i test with the onetouch and then with the BD tester they are off anywhere from 20 to 60+ points and i also had that same problem with a reli on meter to but it was worse. I know that their is a margen that the goverment requiers for it to be ok.
Avatar f tn There is a slight, normal margin of expected error in all of them. There is no "one" true blood glucose result from any meter. They can all vary by a few points. As Amberelise said, check when fasting for a few days, and 2 hours after meals for a few days. Write down what you eat. Be sure you are avoiding very high sugar drinks and fruit juice, and they will wreak havoc with your blood sugar levels.
Avatar f tn half year post liver transplant, my question now is about his bood sugar, we are trying to monitor it , we have the kit and test sugar before and after meal, but there was time that in just a minute sugar rises and and sometimes went very low. is this normal for or the kit have a problem?
Avatar n tn s healthiest for EVERYBODY and certainly for a child who is having troubles regulating his glucose. As for the inconsistency in the readings, I, too, have read that glucose drops from fingertips are the most accurate. Other liquids are in the body, and if that particular "poke" caused a mixture of blood and other tissue liquids, your numbers could be slightly different from what his real glucose levels are.
Avatar n tn When I wake up my blood sugars are in the mid 50s. After breakfast they hover around 76 or 82. They rarely ever go above 86 ever. Once a day they may hit 115 if I eat bread ..stay there briefly to go back down to the 70s. I am not on a specialty diet nor do I do keto. I usually eat a lot of fruit and seafood. Once average my glucose monitor tells me my daily averages are around 75. What do you think I have? Am I in a pre-diabetic state and my panaceas is just pumping out insulin?
Avatar m tn I am controlling my diabetes now for two months without medication. I set up an excel document and print it off , you can fit two months worth of info on one sheet, it's so easy to show the doctor trends, I include how many calories I've eaten per meal. It's really helped me. I've lost 30 llbs in two months and have stayed off of medication.
