Importance of Self-Monitoring your Blood Glucose Levels

Many people think that there is no point in self-testing 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 Monitoring System 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 Meter will read the result automatically. Using the Self-Test diary included in the pack to record your results will help you and your healthcare team work out whether your treatment needs to be adjusted.

Please watch the video produced by about our NEW SD Codefree Blood Glucose Meter.

Blood glucose testing

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.

Benefits of the SD CodeFree System?

  • Quick and Easy to use – many meters will require you to enter a unique code every time you test but with the SD CodeFree Meter you just need to apply some blood to a test strip, insert it into the slot and the meter will automatically give you a reading in just 5 seconds!!
  • Convenient – the meter is small (47mm x 95mm x 17.5mm) and lightweight (47.5g with battery) and comes with a free carry case so that you can take your SD CodeFree Meter with you anywhere. The carry case is compact and lightweight but still has compartments for everything you need – Lancing Device, Lancets, Test Strips, Control Solution and Instructions.
  • Large Memory – the SD CodeFree Meter can store up to 500 results at a time.
  • Alternative Site Testing – the kit comes with an adaptable lancing device enabling you to obtain a blood sample from somewhere other than your fingertip eg. palm, forearm etc. This can help to give you a more accurate result if you have not eaten or taken any medication in the last few hours.
  • There is also an alarm setting to remind you to take your blood glucose reading.
  • Low priced replacement strips and lancets – 50 replacement strips for most blood glucose meters will cost you around £10 or more but you can buy 50 replacement strips for the SD CodeFree Meter from us for just £7.69 including postage!! You can also buy 100 lancets for just £5.99 including P&P!!
  • Comes with a free 1 year warranty.
  • You can use your SD CodeFree Meter with SD Diabetes Management Software to store your records on your computer and help you to spot patterns for planning meals, exercise and medication. The Software is free for all customers and should be used under the supervision of a medical professional who will be able to use the program to help you better manage your diabetes.

    Excellent kit with everything you require to take your own blood glucose readings, contained in it’s own little pouch. Cost effective to buy and easy to use monitor gives all the information you need without the added complexity of touch screen, charts, downloads etc. Highly recommended.

    Bought the SD Codefree blood glucose monitor complete set and extra testings strips. Both orders arrived as expected with no delay. The monitor is very easy to use. However, there is one thing I like to comment. That is the lancing device. My old one seem can have the the lancet be inserted into device better. The new one, that comes with the SD, feels like just have the lancet sitting on the top, not holding firmly (just about 1mm into the holder, my old one has 5mm into the holder). I did not want to push it too hard into the device, in case it will damage the spring element. So at the moment, I am still using the old lancing device to get blood for the test.
    However, Overall i still think it is a good buy.

    Very good, but deducted a star because the instructions could be clearer. They are plentiful in a well written book. However, the first 3 or 4 attempts were met with an “E1” error code saying that the strips were faulty. They weren’t. It was insufficient blood on the strip. So E1 has more than one meaning, but there is no mention in the book about this.

    Every bit as good as the product originally supplied by my surgery and much cheaper. Website easy to navigate and arrival prompt. Will use from now on. Thanks!

    Great little meter – it is every bit as accurate as any other big name branded meter that I have ever owned (done side by side tests using same finger prick).
    The addition of an indicator to tell whether reading is pre or post meal is invaluable (as my meal times vary somewhat).
    I use this meter and test strips as a type 1 patient (nearly 25 years now) even though I could use more the big named far more expensive test strips courtesy of the NHS – but why waste NHS money which we all ultimately pay for and are responsible for?

    I Like my first meter so much that I bought a 2nd as a backup. Great speedy service and great prices as ever from Homehealth.

    This company is excellent. They delivered the product very quickly and communication was prompt and helpful. The monitor is easy to use and great value for money. I ordered this product ‘blind’ from the website, my previous meter having stopped working. I would highly recommend both Homehealth-UK and this meter, and will be reordering from them again in the future.

    As my GP practice has now decided to remove test strips from my prescription, I decided to buy The SD Codefree which is new to me.

    I have to say that I find the cost’s, not only the meter, but test strips and lancets significantly less than other providers, with the added bonus of not having to complete the VAT reclaim form.

    I have found the SD Codefree very easy to use and without the unnecessary ‘bells & whistles’

    Shipping is very quick, 48 hours from order to delivery, excellent value and service.

    Many thanks

    Excellent value for money. Cheapest test strips out of all the other brands.

    Summary (comparing Gluco RX Nexus mini to Code Free by a 3 month type 2 newbie)
    Although there are a few things that are better about the Gluco Rx Nexus mini, seeing as the Code Free strips are much cheaper, and the costs add up fast, I would still recommend Code Free for anyone on a budget over Gluco Rx. However, if money is no issue, I’d go for Gluco RX Nexus mini.

    Comparison with Gluco RX Nexus Mini glucose meter:
    1-Code Free test strips are cheaper. Save a lot of money in the long run.

    2-Code Free kit bag is better than Gluco RX because the stitching is longer lasting. Although, like the Gluco RX brand, it stupidly does not have space for a spare test strip canister to be used as a bin for used strips and lancets (where on earth do they think people put them? In our pockets?!).

    1-Code Free meter uses button battery instead of AAA, so you cannot use rechargeable, and it might be harder to find replacement batteries.
    2-Code Free meter does not have a back light, just an old LCD screen. (Although if you’re photo phobic, this is actually an advantage)
    3-Code Free meter almost always reads higher than Gluco RX. Gluco RX will say 4.4mmol, Code Free will say 5.0mmol. I’ve done quite a few comparison tests, with the same drop of blood, and Code Free is almost always gives a reading which is 25% higher.
    4-Code Free seems a bit more variable in what value it gives the same drop of blood tested twice (using the same meter). Gluco RX is usually more accurate (only varies 0.1mmol from one test from same drop of blood to another. Although sometimes it also gives wildly different results. I think this happens when I have residue on my fingers despite washing hands. I use magnesium oil and various other skin applied medicines a lot.

    5-Code Free meter is about twice the size as the Nexus Mini.

    6- Code Free kit doesn’t come with free control solution. Although it seems most people don’t need or use it anyway. It does come with an odd looking non disposable test strip. I still have no idea what this thing is for, and why I’ve not seen or heard of other brands using such a thing.

    7-Instructions could be a bit better. Nexus ones are not great either, but a little better.

    8- If you want to connect your Code Free to a computer to transfer the results, you must pay about £8 for a special cable (doesn’t seem to use ordinary mini USB). But with the Gluco RX Nexus mini, you get the cable for free by calling a tel number.
