As an important part of the diabetes maintenance process, glucose control solution allows you to test the quality of your self-monitoring system. Glucose control solution is a glucose solution made by the manufacturer of your blood glucometer. This solution, which has a pre-set level of glucose, is meant to verify result accuracy within your unit.
Glucose control solution is usually made from one, two or three levels of glucose: these static levels provide vital information about how well your batch of diabetic test strips are working. It also can verify an unusual blood glucose level result (if the level is too high or too low) and can check whether or not your blood glucometer has sustained damage.
The Importance of Glucose Control Solution
The enzyme that is used on diabetic test strips, glucose oxidase, can be adversely affected by many different factors including the test strips’ age, how they are stored, the environmental factors during shipment, moisture levels and more. Because of this, using a glucose control solution to gauge the accuracy of a new box of diabetic test strips is a good habit to get into. It only takes mere seconds to determine if a freshly opened box of test strips has been damaged. Because diabetics make vital choices regarding their diabetes care based on their blood glucose numbers, it is vital that their test strips — as well as their entire self-monitoring system — are working at an optimal level.
