How to test your blood glucose (sugar) levels

Share this:

Watch a step by step guide on how to test your blood glucose levels. In order to perform a blood glucose test you will require your blood glucose meter, a test strip to hand, a lancing device and a monitoring diary to record the results of your blood glucose test.

Diabetes.co.uk’s Benedict Jephcote runs through how to test your blood sugar. In this video, Benedict is using a OneTouch meter and test strips.

Ben’s blood glucose was 3.6 mmol/L (or 65 mg/dL) in this video. Learn about hypos (low blood glucose) at http://www.diabetes.co.uk/Diabetes-and-Hypoglycaemia.html

For those not in the UK, mmol/L is the UK standard unit. mg/dL is the American unit. You can convert between the two here: http://www.diabetes.co.uk/blood-sugar-converter.html

    This checking is not correct with the NCLEX level of checking glucose level. The way you did was one I followed during the exam which made me get that question wrong. NCLEX says, alcohol wipes, dry, poke the finger, wipes away the first drop{blood} with nonalcohol prep pad, then squeeze the finger again, then the gazette, then read. Reason; the first blood will not give you an accurate figure with alcohol on the tips of the finger no matter how dry it's, for, it has been contaminated with alcohol.

    What do you do when the strip doesn't absorb the blood? For the price of these things they should work 100% of the time
