How to Test Sugar at Home - Firstmed
Posted by : Firstmed    26-10-2021

Allow us to set the stage for you before we load the gun and discuss the proper procedures or methods for using a Glucometer to check blood sugar. We'll talk about the newer types of Glucometers in this article, which are smart and portable, and only require a single drop of blood to administer the results.

 

A Glucometer can be used by anyone with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, latent autoimmune disease, or gestational diabetes during pregnancy to monitor and control their blood sugar. While anyone can use a Glucometer to keep track of their blood sugar, those who are diabetic should keep one on them at all times.

 

Also, to improve one's understanding, one needs to learn how to operate a Glucometer or perform a blood sugar test.

 

Let's get started now that you've established your core context.

 

How to Use Glucometer?

 

Finally, now that we've established the framework, we'll discuss the subject, which is the primary reason for writing this blog. Let's start with what you'll need if you're going to utilize a Glucometer.

You'll need a sanitizer/soap and water/spirit to clean off the testing area, a test strip (which comes with the Glucometer), a lancet, a lancing device, and a notepad to keep track of your results (if unlike i-SENS Cool Glucometer yours cannot record them)

 

Follow these steps to learn how to operate a sugar testing machine:

 

Set out the Glucometer, the test strip, the lancing instrument, the lancet, and the alcohol pad before you begin. There are five phases to the sugar level test:

 

 

1. Setting up the lancet device

 

  • Twist and remove the lancing device's internal cap. This will allow the lancet to be inserted into the mounting component.

 

  • Take the lancet by the circular tip and hold it there. Then, completely insert it into the mounting part.

 

  • Make the lancet tip ready for use by slowly rotating the protective circular cover.

 

  • Replace the internal cap on top of the mounting component.

 

  • The blood sample depth ranges from 1 to 5, with level 5 being the deepest penetration. Depending on your skin type, choose a number.

 

  • Cock the lancing device by tugging on the moving barrel with one hand while holding the adjustable tip in the other. Repeat until you hear a click.

 

  • By doing so, the lancing device's release button will be ready to puncture the test site for blood.

 

2. Before doing a sugar level test, clean the device.

 

  • Thoroughly wash your hands. If you are unable to wash your hands or are outside, use an alcohol swab.

 

  • Dab your fingers in a towel to eliminate all moisture and ensure your hands are fully dry.

 

  • Quickly rub your palms to warm up the blood in your fingertips.

 

 

3. Setting up the Glucometer and test strips

 

  • Place a Glucometer strip in the test strip port of the meter with the contact bar facing upwards.

 

  • Wait for the meter to detect the strip before proceeding.

 

  • When the Glucometer indicates that it is ready to use, draw the blood sample as directed.

 

4. Glucose Test and Blood Sampling

 

  • Once the meter is ready, press the prepared lancing device on the pad of your finger.

 

  • When you're ready, puncture the finger with the loaded trigger button. If you're a beginner, you'll experience some slight discomfort.

 

  • Remove the gadget from your finger and wait for a small blood drop to develop (•).

 

  • Now that our meter is set up, apply the blood sample to the narrow end of the test strip that has been introduced into the Glucometer.

 

  • Continue applying blood samples until the confirmation window is filled.

 

  • Count 5-to-1 backward and i-sens cool Glucometer will calculate the most precise results in 5 seconds.

 

  • If you have a smart Glucometer, the results will be saved; if not, make a note of your blood sugar level in a journal.

 

  • Keeping track of your results is critical because it will help you and your doctor understands the pattern that your blood sugar levels follow.

 

5. Used Test Strips and Lancet Disposal

 

 

  • Wipe the blood sample from the fingertip with clean cotton after the glucose test.

 

  • Rotate and remove the lancing device's internal cap, which opens up the mounting section where the lancet is put.

 

  • Re-insert the lancet from the needle end into the circular protective cover you removed before.

 

  • To remove the lancet, cock the lancing instrument once more.

 

  • Slide the release button to remove the mounted lancet once the device is cocked.

 

  • Collect and dispose of the discarded lancet and Cool Test Strip in the trash.

 

Let's obtain some essential knowledge on other elements now that you know how to use a Glucometer to check blood sugar. The parts of blood sugar testing/glucose testing/sugar level testing at home that cause concern.
