Quick and easy home glucose test will help to prevent future complications
Diabetes is on the rise and it is also one of the world's most predominant illnesses. There are 3.9 million people living with diabetes in the UK but early diagnosis can be detected with the aid of the quick and easy-to-use home glucose test kit by Care Diagnostica.
Diseases affecting the pancreas and thus impairing the production of insulin lead to excessive glucose concentration and consequently to a disturbance in metabolic function. There are long term implications which come with having high levels of glucose in the blood; it can damage all the blood vessels in the human body. Also it can lead to impaired eyesight, kidney failure, nerve damage, erectile dysfunction and poor wound healing capability to name but a few. Worryingly, there is a significantly higher risk of cardiac arrest and strokes.
How to use your home diabetes test kit and what will the result tell you?
You should test your blood sugar levels on an empty stomach, which means you should not eat or drink anything for a period of 12 hours before performing the test. It will also be helpful to interpret the test result in daylight or under a good light source in order to be able to better asses the colour variations.
Performing the test couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is prick your finger with the micro-lancet provided in the pack to successfully obtain a drop of blood. Next, you need to place the drop of blood on the included test strip and wait for 1 minute for the colours to develop and thereafter the result must be read within 30 seconds. Match the colour on the test strip with the disc and read off your blood glucose level.
If your blood glucose level is between 72 mg/dl (4 mmol/l) and 108 mg/dl (6 mmol/l) you are within the normal limits. If you are well below or above the normal limits please consult your doctor.
