What are Contour Next Test Strips? 

Correctly managing your diabetes is essential to maintaining good health, so don’t compromise on your testing strips. Contour Next Test Strips surpass industry standards to provide you with accurate, reliable results that you can trust. 

How to use this product

Frequently testing your blood sugar levels is vital if you have diabetes to ensure they stay in a normal range. Start by preparing your kit for testing, which should include your meter, a Contour Next Test Strip, a fresh, clean lancing device and some cotton wool. 

Wash and dry your hands to ensure the result is not influenced by any sugars present on your fingers. Prick your finger to obtain a drop of blood and put the blood onto the test strip. Place the test strip into the meter to record a result. Use the cotton wool to dab any excess blood from your finger.

Which glucose meters are compatible with Contour Next Test Strips?

When shopping for your testing strips, you should always buy the same brand as your blood glucose meter to ensure they’re not only compatible, but accurate, too. Contour Next Test Strips are suitable for the following blood glucose meters: 

  • CONTOUR® NEXT ONE

  • CONTOUR® NEXT

  • CONTOUR® NEXT LINK/2.4

  • CONTOUR® NEXT USB

  • CONTOUR® XT

What is the best time to check blood sugar?

It’s a good idea to tie your testing times into daily events, that way, you’ll always remember to check your levels. It’s best to test your blood sugar before all three of your meals, after exercise, and before you go to sleep. It’s important to test before you eat as fasting glucose levels will give you a better, truer reading - if you forget and need to test after a meal, you should wait a couple of hours to ensure your reading is accurate.

Can you reuse a testing strip?

You can’t unfortunately, despite it sounding like a cost-effective option. However you try to do it  - flip the strip over or try to remove the first blood sample - as soon as you put it into the meter, it will tell you that the strip is invalid. If you’re lucky enough to get a reading at all, it cannot be trusted as an accurate reading as the strip has been tampered with.

How can I test my blood sugar?

You can test your blood sugar at home or on the go by using a traditional glucose monitoring system, where you prick your finger to draw out a drop of blood to put on the test strip. Place the strip into the meter that displays the blood sugar levels and record the level in case your healthcare provider needs to see the results. Having a blood sugar reader enables you to check your sugar levels multiple times a day, helping you to keep an eye on your results so your healthcare provider can let you know how much medication to take.
