Blood Glucose Meter

Keeping an accurate idea of your blood glucose levels is an integral part of successful diabetes management. To do that,  SIFSOF provides you with meters that integrate directly with you smart phone.

A blood glucose meter is a small, portable machine that’s used to measure how much glucose (a type of sugar) is in the blood (also known as the blood glucose level). Hence, people with diabetes often use a blood glucose meter to help them manage their condition.

If you have diabetes, you’ll likely need a glucometer to measure and display the amount of sugar (glucose) in your blood. Exercise, food, medications, stress and other factors affect your blood glucose level. Consequently, using a glucometer can help you better manage your diabetes by tracking any fluctuations in your blood glucose level.

Many types of blood glucose meters are available, from basic models to more-advanced meters with multiple features and options.

Glucometers provide readings by detecting the level of glucose in a person’s blood. To get a reading, a person pricks the skin — most commonly, a finger — and applies the blood sample gained to a test strip inserted in the meter.

The glucose in the blood reacts with the chemicals in the strip. Then, electrical currents pass through, determining the level of glucose in the sample and providing numerical results within seconds
