Title: good blood glucose monitor

(No Transcript)
A blood glucose monitor will tell you when you
glucose in your blood is high or low. If your
glucose gets high or lower than it should be,
your doctor what will tell you what to do in that
case. However, keeping track of the amount of
glucose in your blood is a great idea. If you are
diabetic, you should know how to monitor your
blood glucose level yourself. Knowing how to do
this is very important to keep your glucose level
from falling too low or rising too high.Listed
below is how you should use your blood glucose
monitor meter properly.
  • Open the package with extreme caution.
  • 2) Make sure that you have washed your hands with
    mild soap before proceeding further.
  • 3) Take out the lancing device, glucose
    monitoring strips and the blood glucose monitor.
  • 4) Insert a fresh (unused) lance in the lancing
    device. Now you need to set it to 3, which is
    usually achieved by rotating the base. Prime it.
  • 5) Insert the code chip into the receptacle.

6) Once you're done, turn on the device and wait
till a code appears on the digital display. If no
code appears, it means that the monitor and test
strip is not synchronized properly. 7) Take out
an unused glucose strip and be ready with it.
Hold the lancing device vertically on the tip of
your finger and release the trigger. A fine and
tiny hole will be punctured in your skin. If you
can't see a small drop of blood, you might press
around the area till you can. 8) Switch on the
blood glucose monitor and pause until the blood
icon flashes. After that, sweep the end of the
glucose strip athwart the drop of blood. 9)
Insert the glucose strip into the receptacle and
wait for the results. 10) Note down the reading
and remove the used lance as well as the glucose
strip. Discard them. Turn off the device and keep
it in a safe place.
