The Freestyle Glucose Meter uses the FreeStyle Test Strips and have been calibrated for proven accuracy and holding the title as World's fastest glucose meter. Available is alternate site testing alternate site testing (AST) for a less painful testing experience. With more nerve ending in the finger tips, the ability to take blood glucose samples in AST locations have proven to be less painful in 7 out of 10 patients. FreeStyle Meters offer the most alternate test site locations available.


alternate_site_testingAlternate Site Testing With The FreeStyle Lite Meter:

To elaborate more on alternate site testing (AST), there are times when testing the finger is preferred. When your condition involves rapid changes in blood glucose levels, it might be better to use finger-tip testing with your FreeStyle Glucose Meter. This is because blood flow is three to five times faster than alternate sites and therefore will pick up on those changes sooner than an alternate test site (AST). The FreeStyle Lite Glucose Meter is a very accurate device, it is proper testing for your level of diabetes with any glucose meter that is required for the best blood glucose management. Another factor is the delution level of blood sugar in your finger is different than alternate sites, so the meters have been calibrated for this area. If you do plan to use alternate site testing, it is best to get approval from your health care professional and know the differences in test results.


FreeStyle Lite Meter Display Lights:

The FreeStyle Lite Meter comes with two built in lights to help make your blood glucose testing a little easier and convenient in low light situations. The display backlight on your FreeStyle Meter can be turned on in any mode except when applying a sample. While in sample mode, the test light will come on and help to see your blood sample and FreeStyle Lite Test Strip. This is extremely convenient for those who test bedside or in other low light situations. Even more so, those with limited vision have shown the greatest appreciation to the added lighting. Sometimes it is not so easy to flip an extra light on when you have your hands full in the middle of a test; the FreeStyle Lite user never has this problem.

hydrationOther Considerations While Using The FreeStyle Lite Meter:

Other things to consider to insure accurate blood glucose testing with the FreeStyle Lite Meter or any other glucose meter are make sure you are properly hydrated. Dehydration and excessive water loss can effect reading of a glucose meter. Always take caution if readings are below 60 mg/dL or higher than 240 mg/dL. You should repeat test to be sure before contacting a healthcare professional or taking other necessary precautions. It is common for some diabetics to get dehydrated easily and for those that know this should monitor their blood glucose and hydration more closely.

Just in case you are still wondering what a glucose meter is, or would like more information on them we have compiled this section for those who just can't get enough info. So what is a glucose meter? A glucose meter is a medical device for determining a persons blood glucose levels. It is used mostly by those with hypoglycemia or diabetes mellitus. The meter works with a lancing device and lancet, that obtains the blood sample by pricking the finger or alternate site. With the disposable test strips that work with the glucose meter, you apply the blood sample.  The meter then displays the level in mg/dl or mmol/l. Typically all glucose meters work this way, but have added advancements in this technology and minimal changes to target certain types of users or to improve all around features. Typically the focus is on speed, ease of use and accuracy. FreeStyle Lite Meters have focused on a generalized upgrade as to be a great product for the average diabetic, to those with diabetes related impairments.
