Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Can blood sugar strips be reused?
No. All the blood glucose test strips are for single use only. Do not reuse a test strip, as it may not provide the appropriate results. It is strongly advised always to discard a test strip after every use.

Q. What are the benefits of glucometers?
It is well known that testing blood glucose levels with a glucometer at home is one of the best ways to regulate blood sugar levels. It can help to test blood glucose at any time of the day and anywhere. Using a portable glucometer is the best way to test glucose when travelling. Charting blood glucose levels becomes easy with glucometers, especially with devices with memory options to store previous readings. By helping to check blood glucose, blood glucose monitors can help manage blood glucose levels.

Q. What is a normal glucometer reading?
According to the American Diabetes Association, the fasting or preprandial blood glucose levels for diabetics should be between 80 – 130 mg/dl, and postprandial (1-2 hours after meals) should be less than 180 mg/dl. However, the range mentioned in the glucose monitor may be a little different. So, speak to the doctor to calibrate the results with the lab reports.

Q. How do blood glucose monitors work?
Diabetes devices or glucometers test the amount of glucose in the blood. The test strips in glucometers contain an enzyme glucose oxidase, which reacts with glucose in the blood and sends the result as an electronic signal displayed on the monitor.

Q. How often blood glucose levels should be tested with a glucometer?
In the case of type 1 diabetes, check the blood glucose levels several times a day, such as pre and post-meals and before and after exercise or as advised by the doctor. Whereas, in the case of type 2 diabetes, monitoring the sugar levels might be based on the severity of the condition, which can be several times a day, once a day, or thrice a week. Hence, talk to the doctor about how often blood glucose levels should be tested.
