Here are Frequently Asked Questions about Easy Touch 3 in 1 :
Why is it important to monitor your blood glucose levels ?
Diabetes is a complex condition that differs from patient to patient. It is important that you monitor your glucose levels regularly and get familiar with your pattern of readings at different times of the day. Regular self-monitoring provides valuable information that your health care team can use to make decisions about medication and insulin and improve control of your diabetes. Monitoring your blood glucose also helps prevent immediate problems that can result from glucose levels that are too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia). Both conditions can be serious if not treated right away.
Can I test myself at home for blood glucose/Cholesterol/Uric Acid levels?
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, however, your doctor will recommend a home glucose monitor (glucose meter). You will be given guidelines for how high or low your blood sugar should be at different times of the day. By checking your glucose regularly, you can see if the diet and medication schedule you are following is working properly.

How much blood should be applied?
Although only a small amount of blood is needed, it is very important that you put enough blood on your test strip so that the entire reaction zone is covered with red blood. This ensures that your meter can give accurate and reliable results.
How often should I test my blood glucose?
It depends on what type on medications you are taking. For someone taking insulin, it is recommended to test at least 4 times per day. If someone is on oral medications, it may only be 1-2 times a day. It also depends on the A1C result. If someone has an A1C less than 6%, they may only need to test 1-2 times per week. Work with your healthcare professional to design a testing schedule that is right for you..
What meter reading is considered normal range?
Normal fasting blood glucose is 70~100mg/dL (3.9~5.6mmol/L).
Normal fasting blood cholesterol is below 200mg/dL (5.2mmol/L).
The expected blood uric acid value is as following,
Male: 3~7.2mg/dL (179~428μmol/L).
However, the above range is just a reference, and it may not apply for every person.
Does the meter can be work with the strip of different brand?
The meter can only be used with the test strips of the same brand. Other test strips will give inaccurate results.
Can I reuse the test strips?
Test Strips are for single use only. Never reuse a test strip that has had either blood or control solution applied to it.
Why meter do not start to count down after I press a drop of blood on the test strip?
Put the drop of blood close to strip side of the test strip target area. The blood will be absorbed and cause the target area to turn red. The testing reaction starts when the meter beeps. The meter starts to count down then show your result on the screen.
