Contour Next Blood Glucose Meter

If you have diabetes, measuring your blood glucose levels is one of the most important things you can do, as it helps you to track how your condition is progressing, and whether your medications are working to their full potential.

Blood glucose monitoring is the best way to make sure that you’re managing your condition well at home, as it’s an accurate way of measuring your current blood sugar levels between your diabetic appointments. Blood glucose monitors are also useful for those that are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, such as those that are overweight, pre-diabetic, or have polycystic ovary syndrome.

Contour Next is a blood sugar monitor that offers simplicity, with an easy-to-read display, and the ability to store up to 800 tests. With Contour Next, you also have the option to transfer your readings over to a computer with the Glucofacts Deluxe software for you to collect your results in an easily readable format for you to take with you to your next diabetes clinic appointment.

The Contour Next Blood Glucose Meter is available to buy from Doctor4U for £16.99

Contour Next

Contour Next is a simple but effective and accurate blood glucose monitoring system, by one of the leading brands in diabetes care and equipment. There’s no coding involved with the Counter Next monitor, meaning that it’s easy to use right out of the box once you’ve completed setting it up to suit you.

This meter from Contour allows you to set reminders for you to check your blood glucose levels, set custom target ranges, and even has an auto-log feature for your previous results. It comes with a comprehensive instruction booklet so that you can learn how to use all of these features and utilise the Contour Next meter to its full potential.

The first time you use your Countour Next glucometer, you’ll need to make sure that it’s reading correctly by running a control test with the Contour Next control solution. When you do this, the result on the machine should fall within the range stated on your pack of testing strips. You should also complete a control test every time you start a new container of testing strips, or if you suspect that the meter isn’t working properly. If the results of your control test are outside of the range stated on your testing strip packaging, you should call Contour customer service and not use the glucometer to measure your own blood glucose until the issue is resolved.

Providing that your meter works well after the control test, and that you’ve set it up in a way to suit you, the Contour Next meter is incredibly simple to use. Simply insert a compatible testing strip to turn it on, and complete a blood glucose test as normal. It’s always important to wash and dry your hands thoroughly before you prick your fingertip for a sample, just to make sure that the blood won’t be contaminated or diluted to allow you to get the most accurate reading possible.

The testing strip will suck up the correct amount of blood that it needs for the sample, but if for some reason you don’t produce enough blood during the first finger prick, Contour Next uses Second Chance sampling, meaning that you can add more blood to the same test strip within 60 seconds for the reading to still go ahead. This may save you from wasting testing strips if your sample size isn’t large enough.

You should only take your blood sample from your finger tip unless you’ve been advised by your GP to use an alternative sample site.

If you don’t already have a lancet device, you may wish to buy one to make finger prick tests easier. You should change the lancet inside the device each time you need to take a sample, and dispose of the used needles properly, and not in your general household waste.

Blood sugar monitor

Blood sugar monitors are an incredibly important tool for those that have diabetes or need to observe their blood glucose levels for another health related reason. Contour produce some of the most popular blood sugar monitors on the market today, and are a well- known and respected brand.

A newer blood sugar monitor from Contour is the Next One – a glucometer that uses a mobile app t help you track your results.

You should have your own target ranges agreed with your GP or diabetic clinic team, and blood sugar monitors help you to track whether or not you’re staying within that target range. If not, you should discuss with your healthcare team what you may be able to do. Sometimes, small lifestyle changes are all that are needed to bring your blood glucose levels into a healthy range, whilst others find that they may need to start taking medications or increase their current dosage.

Contour next test strips

This device is only compatible with the Contour Next test strips. If you use any other kind of test strips intended for different monitors, you result will not be accurate and the machine may not accept the strips. If you aren’t sure which testing strips are right for you, you should speak to your local pharmacist for advice, taking the booklet for your monitor with you to make sure that you get the right equipment.

Contour next strips are also available online. Unfortunately, the Contour Next glucometer doesn’t include test strips, but they are readily available and reasonably priced.

Contour diabetes

Contour is one of the leading and most trusted brands in diabetes care and equipment. Contour produces high quality and accurate blood glucose meters, and their dedicated customer service team are available to answer any queries you may have about your equipment.

Contour produces a wide range of glucose meters and testing strips, so you can find the right one for you depending on your needs and budget.

How to use Contour Next

Once you’ve set up your Contour Next meter, you should be able to use it freely and easily. Just insert a Contour Next testing strip to turn the machine on, draw your blood sample, and wait 5 seconds for the result to display on the screen.

Contour Next blood glucose meters are pre-set with three target ranges if the auto-log feature is on: fasting, pre-meal, and after meal. If you turn the auto-log function off, you’ll have a default target range of 70mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L) to 180mg/dL (10 mmol/L).

If your blood result shows as being below target, the machine will beep twice and display a warning message. In this instance, you should eat or drink something sugary to raise your blood sugar levels to a healthy range. If your result is above target level, you will also receive a warning message. In this case, you should contact your GP or diabetic nurse for advice.

Your Contour Next machine will automatically turn off once the testing strip is removed.

For more information on how to use and set up your Contour Next meter, please see the comprehensive information leaflet that comes with your order.
