Blood Glucose

A blood glucose monitor, also known as a blood glucose meter, allows you to take an accurate reading of your blood glucose levels in order to manage diabetes effectively. These monitors come in a variety of styles and designs, with some portable for use on the go and others designed to go under the skin to provide a continuous blood glucose reading.

Diabetes is a complex and chronic illness, which is why monitoring blood glucose levels is so important. Keeping track of high and low blood glucose levels is the key to preventing hypoglycaemia or a “hypo”, which is where the level of sugar in the body drops too low, or hyperglycaemia, which is where the levels are too high. This can be dangerous when not treated quickly, and frequent testing can prevent this.

The PlusMed FasTTest Blood Glucose Monitor is one of the best on the market, providing you with everything you need to get a fast and accurate reading of your blood glucose level. With a small blood sample, you can test your blood both at home and in professional settings with ease, and the kit comes with a lancing device to make things straightforward for you.

What are the early symptoms of diabetes?

Diabetes symptoms come in many different forms, but you may want to talk to a healthcare professional if you are experiencing things like frequent urination, excessive thirst and hunger, fatigue, blurred vision, weight loss, or cuts and bruises which are slow to heal.


What does blood glucose tell you?

A blood glucose test will tell you if your blood sugar levels are in the healthy range. If they are not, it could be a sign of diabetes or other health problems, and so it is often used to help to diagnose, manage, and treat diabetes.


What is a normal level of glucose in the blood?

Blood sugar readings can be challenging to understand. A reading less than 140mg/dl is considered normal. Your reading may be considered high when it is 160mg/dl or over your personal target, while a low blood glucose level is considered to be anything under 70mg/dl.


What causes your blood glucose to change?

Diabetics have to monitor their diet closely, as this can have an impact on their blood glucose levels. However, there are other things that can affect your blood sugar levels, such as physical activity and any medication or conditions that you may have alongside diabetes.


What is the difference between hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia?

Hyperglycaemia indicates a high level of sugar in the blood, while hypoglycaemia, or “hypo”, indicates a level level of sugar in the blood. Hyperglycaemia can cause vomiting, hunger and thirst, vision problems, and other complications. Hypoglycaemia is often considered more dangerous, with confusion, irritation, and blurred vision some of the symptoms. It can cause serious problems if left untreated, such as seizures and unconsciousness, which is why monitoring blood sugar levels is important.
