Many people think that there is no point in using a blood glucose meter because they believe that they know when their blood glucose levels are too high. Unfortunately, this is often not true and unless your blood glucose level is very high. The way you feel is not always a good or accurate guide to what is happening. The SD CodeFree blood glucose testing machine gives an accurate picture of your blood glucose level at the time of the test. It involves pricking your finger with the lancing device and putting a drop of blood on a testing strip. SD CodeFree Blood Glucose Meter will read the result automatically. Use the Self-Test diary included in the pack to record your results. This will help you and your healthcare team work out whether your treatment needs to be adjusted.

All methods of glucose testing involve collecting blood. This is obtained by pricking the skin, usually the fingertip with a special lancet. However, if you have to test frequently you may find your fingers get sore and so there are diabetes monitors available (like the one we sell) which enable you to take blood from other parts of the body such as the palm, forearm or upper arm. This is known as alternate site testing (AST). However, you should always consult your diabetes specialist before testing from other parts of the body.
