Adding Comments to Blood Glucose Results
NOTE
Analyzing your blood glucose results stored in the meter is an effective way for you and your
healthcare professional to determine how well you are controlling your diabetes. This analysis is a
valuable tool for making improvements to your diabetes management. Use care when adding
comments to blood glucose results. Incorrect comments can cause inaccurate patterns to be detected
by the meter when Patterns is On.
Overview
It is very important to have the correct time and date set in the meter. Having the correct time and date
setting helps ensure accurate interpretation of information by you and your healthcare professional.
• You may add comments to blood glucose results to help you and your healthcare professional analyze
patterns detected by the meter (see the Patterns section in the chapter Meter Settings for details).
• If Patterns is set to On, once a pattern is detected you may NOT change the comment attached to a
blood glucose result (see the Patterns section in the chapter Meter Settings for details).
• Adding a comment saves the comment and the symbol with the blood glucose results.

Blood Glucose Tests
Performing a Blood Glucose Test with Blood from Your Palm, Forearm, or Upper
Arm (Alternative Site Testing)
You have the option of obtaining a blood sample from other sites on your body besides the fingertip.
Alternative sites include the palm, forearm, and upper arm.
Blood obtained from the fingertip and palm can be used at any time to perform a blood glucose test.
If blood from the forearm or upper arm is used, there are certain times when testing is not appropriate.
This is because your blood glucose level changes faster in your fingertip and palm than in the forearm
and upper arm. These differences may cause you to misinterpret your actual blood glucose level, leading
to improper therapy and potential adverse health effects.
Read the next section before you try testing from the forearm or upper arm.
You may perform a forearm or
upper arm test
• immediately before a meal.
• while fasting.
You may NOT perform a
forearm or upper arm test
• up to 2 hours following a meal, when blood glucose values can rise
quickly.
• after injecting bolus insulin, when blood glucose values can
decrease rapidly.
• after exercise.
• if you are sick.
• if you think your blood glucose is low (hypoglycemia).
• if you sometimes do not notice when your blood glucose is low.
w WARNING
Do not use alternative site testing to calibrate a continuous glucose monitoring system or to make
insulin dosing calculations.
If you are interested in AST, talk to your healthcare professional first.
To obtain an AST cap and detailed AST instructions, contact Roche.

NOTE
Analyzing your blood glucose results stored in the meter is an effective way for you and your
healthcare professional to determine how well you are controlling your diabetes. This analysis is a
valuable tool for making improvements to your diabetes management. Use care when adding
comments to blood glucose results. Incorrect comments can cause inaccurate patterns to be detected
by the meter if Patterns is On.
Patterns
A Pattern is detected by the meter when 2 below-target (Low Pattern) or 3 above-target (High Pattern)
test results with the same comment are detected within a 7-day period.
• The meter does NOT detect a pattern for the “other” comment added to blood glucose results.
• It is very important to have the correct time and date set in the meter. Having the correct time and date
setting helps ensure accurate interpretation of information by you and your healthcare professional.
• Only blood glucose results marked with comments will be included in Patterns. If LO or HI test results
are marked with comments, the results become part of Patterns (see the chapter Blood Glucose Tests
for more details).
• Target Ranges must be set in the meter to use Patterns. If Target Ranges is not set, the meter prompts
you to set them.

Overview
• Blood glucose results are stored from the newest to the oldest.
• The meter automatically stores up to 720 blood glucose results in memory with the time and
date of the test and any test result comments.
• Once 720 blood glucose results are in memory, adding a new blood glucose result deletes the
oldest blood glucose result.
• Only test results that have been marked with a fasting, before meal, after meal, or bedtime
comment are included in the average for that comment.
• All test results are included in the overall 7, 14, 30, and 90-day averages regardless of what
comment is added.
• Control results are stored in memory but cannot be reviewed on the meter. To view stored control
results, transfer them to a compatible software application.
• Control results are not included in the averages or blood glucose reports.
• Once 32 control results are in memory, adding a new control result deletes the oldest control
result.
w WARNING
Do not change your therapy based on an individual test result in memory. Talk to your
healthcare professional before changing therapy based on test results in memory.

Information for Healthcare Professionals
w WARNING
Healthcare Professionals: Follow the infection control procedures appropriate for your facility. Refer
to the test strip package insert for additional healthcare professional information.
Sample Handling
Always wear gloves when handling blood-contaminated items. Always adhere to the recognized
procedures for handling objects that are potentially contaminated with human material. Follow the
hygiene and safety policy of your laboratory or institution. Prepare the selected blood collection site per
facility policy.
Refer to the test strip package insert for additional information regarding acceptable sample types,
anticoagulants, and handling instructions.
Recommending Alternative Site Testing to Patients
Decisions about whether to recommend Alternative Site Testing (AST) should take into account the
motivation and knowledge level of the patient and his or her ability to understand the considerations
relative to diabetes and AST. If you are considering recommending AST for your patients, you need to
understand that there is a potential for a significant difference between fingertip or palm test results and
test results obtained from the forearm or upper arm. The difference in capillary bed concentration and
blood perfusion throughout the body can lead to sample site-to-site differences in blood glucose results.
These physiological effects vary between individuals and can vary within a single individual based upon
his or her behavior and relative physical condition.
Our studies involving alternative site testing of adults with diabetes show that most persons will find their
glucose level changes more quickly in blood from the fingertip or palm than in blood from the forearm or
upper arm. This is especially important when blood glucose levels are falling or rising rapidly. If your
patient is used to making therapy decisions based upon fingertip or palm test results, he or she should
consider the delay, or lag time, affecting the test results obtained with blood from the forearm or upper
arm.
