Health Tip: Take Care of Your Glucose Meter
And make sure you know how to use it

(HealthDay News) -- Caring for your glucose meter can help you get the most accurate blood sugar results.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration mentions these suggestions:

  • Before use, read the instructions for both your glucose meter and test strips.
  • Make sure you use the appropriate test strips for your meter.
  • Always wash hands before testing.
  • Keep a log with results and the date and time you tested, even if your glucose meter does this for you.
  • Follow the instructions on how to appropriately clean your glucose meter, and avoid any harsh cleaners.
  • Bring your meter with you to doctor's visits.
