The Contour 50 test strips -case of 12 allow the tester to simply “plug” it into the meter while the sip-in action accepts the tiny blood sample into the strip. These strips allow for reliable results because the various interferences that might skew results on other strips are accounted for.
Be sure to look for patterns in your blood sugar readings and vary the times that you test. Consider testing pre and post-prandially (before and 2 hours after the first bite of your meal). Do this for each meal to learn how your body is reacting to your food, exercise, stress, medication, etc. Test at bedtime and the next morning to see what occurs overnight when you are not eating for several hours. All of this information helps you and your healthcare team to determine your best course of treatment. Take control of your diabetes.
