The principle of the method
When glucose reacts with the reagents on the test strips, an electrical current
is produced, which is proportional to the glucose concentration in the blood sample.
The glucose concentration is calculated by the meter and based on the current measured.

4. Alternate Site Testing (AST)
What is AST?
Sampling from anatomical sites (parts of the body) other
than the fingertip (i.e. forearm, upper arm, thigh, calf, palm)
to check the blood glucose levels. This system allows you to
test on the forearm with the equivalent results to fingertip
testing.
There are important limitations to AST. Please consult your
healthcare professional before you use AST.
What is the advantage ?
It is more painful feeling when taking blood sample from
fingertips because fingertips have many nerve endings. Other
body sites do not have as many nerve endings, so you will not
feel as much pain as at the fingertip.
When to use AST ?
Medication, stress, illness, food and exercise can affect blood
glucose levels. Capillary whole blood at the fingertip can
reflect test changes faster than capillary blood at other sites
of body. If you test your blood glucose level during or
immediately after a meal, physical exercise or stressful
events, take the blood sample from your fingertip instead of
from other sites.
Use AST only:
1. 2 hours or more after taking insulin;
2. 2 hours or more after a meal;
3. 2 hours or more after exercise.
Do not use AST if you are pregnant, or if you are aware that
your glucose level is not as stable as usual, or if you think
you have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or hyperglycemia
(high blood sugar).
Do not use AST if you think your blood glucose is low and if
your AST results do not match the way you feel.

17.Limitations
1.No Neonatal use
Do not use for neonatal blood glucose testing.
2.Hematocrit range
Hematocrit in the range of 32~56% has been shown not to affect the
glucose results. If you do not know your hematocrit level, consult
your healthcare professional.
3.Hemoglobin range
Hemoglobin levels of 500 mg/dL or below will not interfere with
blood glucose test results.
4.Elevated Cholesterol and Triglycerides
Cholesterol levels up to 500mg/dL (12.9 mmol/L) and Triglycerides
up to 1000 mg/dL has been shown not to affect glucose results.
5.Medications
Interference was observed for therapeutic levels of L-DOPA.
No interference was shown for uric acid, acetaminophen, ascorbic
acid and ibuprofen in normal therapeutic levels. However, higher
concentrations in blood may cause incorrect results:
Uric acid: >10.9 mg/dL; acetaminophen: > 6.2 mg/dL;
ascorbic acid: > 4.5 mg/dL; ibuprofen: > 37.5 mg/dL.
6.The test strips may be used at altitudes up to 5,280 feet (1,609 m )
without an effect on test results.
7.Persons suffering from severe dehydration should not be tested
using a capillary whole blood sample.
8.Test results below 70 mg/dL indicate low blood glucose
(hypoglycemia). Test results greater than 240 mg/dL indicate high
blood glucose (hyperglycemia). If you get results below 70 mg/dL
or above 240 mg/dL, repeat the test, and if the results are still below
70 mg/dL or above 240 mg/dL, please consult your healthcare
professional immediately 2.
9.Inaccurate results may occur in severely hypotensive individuals
or patients in shock. Inaccurate results may occur for individuals
experiencing a hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar state, with or without
ketosis. Critically ill patients should not be tested with a blood
glucose meter.
