AccuQuik™ Blood Glucose Monitors
Blood glucose monitors are the main tool to check the control of the diabetes. At any given time, this monitor can reveal blood glucose level accurately and in a timely manner. All they need is a small blood sample that is usually provided by piercing the tip of the finger and then placed on the test strip. The blood sample is then electronically tested for glucose and the results are shown on the screen of the monitor. Our blood glucose monitors come in a whole kit, with all the components required for an accurate reading of the glucose level in your blood. Although the frequency of how often monitor glucose level is usually determined by doctors or health related professionals, there has become a common ground. Most people monitor their glucose level every morning before breakfast, before lunch, dinner, and right before they go to sleep. This depends on the users preferences.
Blood glucose monitors test the amount of glucose that is in the blood and is generally used by diabetics to help regulate their blood sugar levels. Diabetics on average use the monitor once a day for type 1 diabetes and for type 2 diabetes from anywhere between 3 to 10 times a day. The monitor determines blood glucose patterns and helps the individuals to accurately choose meals and manage activities throughout the day.
Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. Normally, the pancreas releases insulin to help your body store and use the sugar and fat from the food you eat. There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is a cause of the pancreas not producing enough insulin, type 2 is the body not responding to the production of insulin. Insulin plays a big role in the absorption of glucose in the bloodstream. People with diabetes have to closely watch their blood glucose levels and minimize rapidly changing blood sugar levels. Symptoms of high blood sugar are frequent urination and increased appetite. If it’s not properly regulated, it can cause vomiting, dehydration, confusion, and in some cases coma or death.
