How to Use Your Glucometer

You may think you have already mastered the skills of glucose monitoring.

What is the first step of using glucometer?

The answer is WASHING YOUR HANDS! Remember to wash your hands with hand soap and warm water before checking your blood sugars. This can help you get rid of food residue on your finger and avoid getting a false high blood glucose result. Don't forget to dry your hands completely to remove any excess water that will dilute your blood results.

Here is a video to guide you through the steps of using the iHealth glucometer.

Happy testing!
