Blood Glucose Test for Diabetes - Home Testing
One Touch Ultra Blood Glucose Test StripsUsually after having done a blood glucose test at a clinical lab and being diagnosed either as a diabetic or borderline diabetic, we are advised to carry out regular blood glucose tests and the best way to do so is right at home. Any drug store will have a number of brands and models of blood glucose testers or glucometers. The most common and reliable type of blood glucose testing kit includes a meter (called the glucometer), a lancing device commonly known as the 'lancing pen' (used to extract a tiny drop of blood), and glucose test strips.
If you are using the glucometer for the first time, you need to locate the 'coding strip' in the test strip container. Insert this coding strip into the special slot (usually on the side of the glucometer). The coding strip calibrates the glucometer. This exercise has to be done every time you buy a new supply of blood glucose test strips.
