Precautions for self testing blood sugar？
1. Pay attention to cleaning work
Before measuring blood sugar, be sure to wash your hands first, otherwise any substances on your hands may affect the accuracy of the test results.
2. Disinfection should be done well
Measuring blood sugar is a traumatic operation, so disinfection is necessary before pricking fingers. Alcohol can be used for disinfection, and iodine solution is not recommended as it may result in inaccurate results.
3. Adequate blood collection volume
Some sugar enthusiasts may encounter the problem when measuring blood sugar: after the blood collection needle punctures their finger, only a small amount of blood flows out, which cannot meet the minimum blood collection volume required by the blood glucose meter. Many people's solution is to squeeze their fingers hard, but this is not advisable.
4. Preservation of test strips
The preservation of test strips is also crucial. Usually, test strips need to be stored in a cool, dry place away from light. Sunlight or humid environments may cause the effective chemical components contained in the test strips to deteriorate.
5. Calibration of blood glucose meter
Newly purchased blood glucose meters usually need to be calibrated before being used for the first time, and they also need to be recalibrated after each period of use.
