Glucose Test Strips
Glucose test strips are an essential puzzle piece in the well-informed and well-maintained care of diabetes. These diabetic test strips, along with blood glucose meters, allow an individual living with diabetes to keep track of his or her blood sugar levels. In turn, the numbers affect the diabetic’s plan of care throughout his or her day and facilitate good choices in food and physical activity. Knowing one’s blood sugar levels also allows a diabetic to keep track of a number changes that may occur throughout the day as well as trends that may occur over days, months — even years. Our state-of-the-art blood glucose meters, along with our glucose test strips, are your must-have tools that will keep you on top of your diabetes care.
How Do Glucose Test Strips Work?
Along with a blood glucometer, diabetic test strips work to show what your blood glucose level is at that moment. These disposable plastic strips contain an enzyme called glucose oxidase, which reacts when a drop of blood is placed on it. The blood glucose meter sends an electrical current to the glucose test strip and the reaction is transmitted back to the meter. Your blood glucose level is then displayed on the meter.
