What is the GlucoRx HCT Blood Glucose & Ketone Meter? 

GlucoRx HCT Blood Glucose & Ketone Meter is a multiparameter meter with Haematocrit Correction Technology that provides enhanced accuracy in diabetes management.

This meter is compatible with GlucoRx HCT Glucose Test Strips, GlucoRx HCT Ketone Test Strips and GlucoRx Lancets.

 

How can I test my blood sugar at home?

You can test your blood sugar at home by using a traditional home 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 at home 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.

 

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.
