Details

How do testing strips work?

A blood sample is placed on the test strip and reacts with a chemical known as glucose oxidase which then produces gluconic acid. The testing strips are used in conjunction with a meter which sends a current to the strip. The current changes based on the amount of gluconic acid, and the meter works out the blood glucose level based on these changes in current.

How to use blood glucose test strips

Before using the testing strips ensure that the testing site is clean and dry. To use the testing strips insert one into a blood glucose meter, TrueYou test strips are only compatible with TrueYou Mini blood glucose meters. Take a blood sample (usually from the fingertip) and touch the test strip while it is still in the meter so that a drop of blood is placed on the strip, and remove when the meter beeps.

Are TrueYou testing strips accurate?

TrueYou testing strips are accurate as long as they are used correctly. Always use the testing strips with a glucose meter that is made by the same manufacturer as anything else might affect the accuracy of the results. All glucose testing meters and test strips have to meet strict accuracy standards. There are some factors which may affect the accuracy of results such as testing from an area other than a fingertip, if you have any dirt or substances on the testing site, or if there are any problems with the strips or meter such as damaged strips or outdated batteries.

As long as you follow the instructions each time you test and keep the device maintained you will get accurate results every time.

How to store blood glucose test strips

For the most accurate results it’s really important to keep both the glucose meter and test strips in good condition. Store test strips at room temperature as extreme temperatures can affect results. Keep the strips sealed in the closed vial and use immediately when one is opened, do not use them if they are out of date. If any dirt or other substance has made its way onto the strips they will no longer be in a usable condition, likewise if they become damaged you should not use them.
