The Gluco Navii is an upgraded meter from SD Biosensor, the makers of the top-selling SD Codefree Blood Glucose Meter. Boasting a greater accuracy due to a wider haematocrit (HCT) range of 0-70% and GDH-FAD enzyme technology, this new meter has all the benefits of the Codefree. This means that extremes do not impact the results in HCT or variations in oxygen concentration, respectively. You can also avoid sore fingers as the strips require a much smaller blood volume of just 0.5uL.
If you are a non-UK customer and want your test strips delivered to an overseas address, please shop the Gluco Navii Glucose test strips for non-UK customers.

In the UK, diabetics do not have to pay VAT on related medications and testing supplies. But unfortunately, most pharmacies and retailers will require you to pay the full price, including VAT, and expect you to fill out a long form to claim the VAT back. By purchasing from Home Health UK and confirming you are a diabetic from the drop-down menu, you will be charged the price excluding VAT. To get the correct price, you must select an option from the drop-down menu.
*Please note that if you confirm you are diabetic, you MUST provide us with your home address. This is because you are making a legal declaration which we will supply to HMRC, so they need your details. You can have your order delivered to an alternate address, such as your work or to a storage facility, and select the non-VAT option. But, you will then need to send us a message with your home address before we can ship the goods.*
Some belive they can tell when their blood glucose levels are high, but this is often not true. How you feel is not always a good or accurate guide to what is happening.
At the time of the test, the Gluco Navii Blood Glucose Monitoring System gives an accurate picture of your blood glucose level. It is a simple process of pricking your finger with the lancing device and putting a drop of blood on a testing strip. Then the Gluco Navii Meter will read the result, which can then be recorded in the Self-Test diary included in the pack. This will help determine whether your treatment needs to be adjusted, something which you can discuss with your healthcare provider.
You can find a full set of detailed instructions that you should read and follow before using the meter. However, to help you get started, here is a quick guide:
In simple terms, diabetes is a common life-long health condition where the amount of glucose in your blood is too high. This is usually because the body cannot use it properly, and your pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin. Your bodies insulin also may not work properly, and this is known as insulin resistance. In the UK, there are 2.8 million people diagnosed with diabetes and an estimated 850,000 people unknowingly have the condition.
More than three-quarters of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes mellitus. Previously, this was known as non-insulin–dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or maturity-onset diabetes mellitus. In type 2 diabetes, insufficient insulin is produced, or your bodies’ insulin does not work properly. It tends to affect older people above the age of 40, however increasingly it is seen in younger, overweight people. Depending on its severity, type 2 diabetes may be managed through diet and physical activity alone. But oral medications or insulin injections can be used, with a combination of these therapies ideal for most cases.
The remainder has type 1 diabetes mellitus, which used to be known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. In type 1 diabetes, the body is unable to produce any insulin. It usually starts in childhood or young adulthood and is treated with diet control and insulin injections.
