How can I use the blood glucose monitor?
First, turn on the meter and prepare a test strip as outlined in your owner's booklet. Choose your spot (don't check from the same finger all the time). Get a drop of blood from the side of your fingertip or other approved site. Check your blood sugar by touching and holding the test strip opening to the drop until it has absorbed enough blood to begin the test. View your test result and take the proper steps if your blood sugar is too high or low based on your healthcare professionals' recommendations.
What is Diabetes?
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 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.
