WARNING
• The meter and lancing device are for single patient use only. Do not share them with anyone,
including other family members, due to the risk of infection from bloodborne pathogens.1,2 Do not use
them on multiple patients!
• All parts of the kit are considered biohazardous and can potentially transmit infectious diseases, even
after you have performed cleaning and disinfection.
1,2
See Appendix E
About Your New Meter
• The meter is designed and can be used for testing fresh capillary whole blood samples (for example, blood
from a fingertip).
• Only use Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test strips. Other test strips will give inaccurate results.
• Although you always apply whole blood to the test strip, the system has been calibrated to deliver
plasma-like values for easier comparison to lab results.
• The meter, test strips, and control solution are only for use outside the body (in vitro). Do not eat the test
strips. Do not swallow or inject the control solution, or use the control solution for any purpose other than
testing the Accu-Chek Aviva Expert system.

Important Information About Bolus Calculators
• The Accu-Chek Aviva Expert system contains the Accu-Chek Bolus Advisor, a bolus calculator that is
intended for use in providing insulin dose recommendations in response to blood glucose, health events,
and carbohydrate input.
• Bolus calculators, such as the Accu-Chek Bolus Advisor, have been demonstrated to facilitate the
optimization of glycemic control in patients who are trained in multiple daily insulin injection therapy and
under the supervision of healthcare professionals experienced in managing insulin-treated patients.1 Such
calculators have also been shown to reduce patient fear of hypoglycemia and improve patient confidence in
diabetes management.2

R Ziegler et al: Use of an insulin bolus advisor improves glycemic control in multiple daily insulin injection
(MDI) therapy patients with suboptimal control: first results from the ABACUS trial; Diabetes Care 36,
3613-3619 (2013).
2
K Barnard et al.: Use of an automated bolus calculator reduces fear of hypoglycemia and improves
confidence in dosage accuracy in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus treated with multiple daily insulin
injections; J. Diabetes Sci. Technol 6:1, 144-149 (2012).

5/12/16 12:59 PM
About Bolus Advice
• Bolus advice is only available if you set up bolus advice on the Accu-Chek Aviva Expert meter. For
information on how to set up bolus advice, see section 5.6 Setting Time Blocks, Health Events, Advice
Options: Bolus Advice Set Up.
• If you deliver a bolus without using bolus advice, you should enter the bolus advice into your diary. It is
important that you enter all bolus insulin doses and the time they were administered, so the Bolus Advisor is
assessing the total amount of insulin in your body. This step can help to reduce insulin stacking (the
over-delivery of insulin) which causes hypoglycemia. It is also important that you enter the associated
carbohydrate information into the diary in order to obtain accurate bolus advice recommendations. For
information on how to enter information into the diary, see Section 4.3, Adding New Data.
WARNING
• Bolus advice should be used only if you are using U100, rapid-acting insulin for bolus dosing.
• Do not use bolus advice with Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) or any other intermediate-acting
insulin.
• Do not use bolus advice if basal insulin dose is unstable.
• Long-acting insulin should not be used as a meal bolus or as a correction bolus.

About Testing Yourself or Others
• If you are very dehydrated or urinating frequently, you may get an inaccurate test result. If you think you are
dehydrated, call your healthcare professional right away.
• Some people with diabetes do not experience symptoms of low blood glucose (hypoglycemia). Others, such
as children or people who are unconscious or have certain disabilities, may not be able to communicate
their symptoms to caregivers. For these reasons, do not change any treatment without first talking to a
healthcare professional.
• Run a control test when you open a new box of test strips or if you think that your test result is incorrect.
Running a control test lets you know that the meter and test strips are working properly.
• If peripheral circulation is impaired, collection of fresh capillary whole blood from the approved sample sites
is not advised as the results might not be a true reflection of the physiological blood glucose level. This may
apply in the following circumstances: severe dehydration as a result of diabetic ketoacidosis or due to
hyperglycemic hyperosmolar non-ketotic syndrome, hypotension, shock, decompensated heart failure
NYHA Class IV, or peripheral arterial occlusive disease.
• Not to be used for patients who are critically ill.
• Refer to the Test Strip and Control Solution Package Inserts for additional health-related information.
• Failure to test could cause a delay in treatment decisions and lead to a serious medical condition. Contact
your healthcare professional if you are unable to test.
v
54525_07006322003.indb 5
5/12/16 12:59 PM
DO NOT CHANGE YOUR TREATMENT BASED ON A SINGLE RESULT THAT DOES NOT MATCH
HOW YOU FEEL OR IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR TEST RESULT COULD BE INCORRECT.
If your blood glucose result doesn’t match how you feel and you have followed the instructions in your
owner’s booklets, follow your healthcare professional’s instructions or call your healthcare professional.
Special Information to Consider When Using This Meter
• Do not use this device to measure blood glucose if you or a person to whom you are providing care is
experiencing cardiovascular collapse (severe shock) or decreased peripheral blood flow.
• Consult your healthcare professional to determine if it is appropriate for your child to be taught how to use
the meter system or any other medical products.

Without bolus advice, you need to consider the following when setting up time blocks:
• Determine the appropriate time range by reviewing the end time for each time block.
• Review the acceptable blood glucose target range (low and high) for each time block.
With bolus advice, you need to consider the following when setting up time blocks:
• Determine the appropriate time range by reviewing the end time for each time block.
• Review the acceptable blood glucose target range (low and high) for each time block.
• Determine your carb ratio (the amount of insulin needed to cover a given amount of carbohydrates) for each
time block.
• Determine your insulin sensitivity (the amount of insulin needed to lower your blood glucose by a given
amount) for each time block.

Blood Glucose Test Reminders (Optional)
The meter can be set up to remind you to retest your blood glucose after a high blood glucose test result,
after a low blood glucose test result, or after a meal.
An after high blood glucose test reminder example:
• The meter is set up with a high bG threshold level of 240 mg/dL and with a reminder time of 60 minutes.
• You have a blood glucose test result higher than 240 mg/dL, perhaps 270 mg/dL.
• In 60 minutes, the meter reminds you to perform another blood glucose test.
The after meal bG test reminder is set up with a carb value and occurs when the carb value exceeds the
snack size. Any of these blood glucose test reminders can be turned on or off individually, as needed. For
more information, see Chapter 5, Changing Meter Settings.
Alarm Clock Reminders
• The meter has alarm clock reminders which can be used as a helpful way to remind you when to test
throughout the day.
• In addition to “bG Test” and “Injection,” you can set reminders for “Other” for any other daily reminder.
• You can set up to 8 reminders per day.
• For more information, see Chapter 5, Changing Meter Settings.
Date Reminders
• The meter can be set up to remind you of upcoming appointments or dates, such as a “Dr. Visit” or a “Lab
Test.”
• For more information, see Chapter 5, Changing Meter Settings.

2.2 Using the Accu-Chek Aviva Expert System
Before You Start Testing
Using Accu-Chek Aviva Plus Test Strips
• Only use Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test strips.
• Store the unused test strips in their original container. Do not remove test strips from the test strip
container and put them into another container, such as a plastic bag, pocket, purse, wallet, etc.
• Immediately after you take out a test strip, securely close the container. This helps keep the test strips dry.
• Use the test strip immediately after you take it out of the container.
• Be sure to check the “Use by” date on the test strip container. Do not use the test strips after that date.
• If the “Use by” date is missing or cannot be read, do not use the test strips.
• Store the test strip container at room temperature between 36–86 °F. Do not freeze. Do not store the
test strip container in rooms where the air is humid such as the kitchen, laundry room, or the bathroom.
Temperatures outside the required range, as well as moisture and humidity, can damage your test strips
and lead to inaccurate results.
• Refer to the test strip package insert for system operating conditions.
• Do not apply blood or control solution to the test strip before you insert it into the meter. If the meter gives
you a result before applying blood or control solution, do not act on that result.
• Do not reuse test strips. Once you have put control solution or blood on a test strip, throw it away. If you
need to retest, use a new test strip.
37
54525_07006322003.indb 37
5/12/16 12:59 PM
WARNING
Not following the precautions below can lead to inaccurate results:
• Do not store test strips in extreme temperatures or moisture areas (bathroom, kitchen, laundry room,
car, or garage). Heat and moisture can damage your test strips.
• Do not bend, cut, or alter the test strips.
• Do not get dirt, food, or other material on the test strips.

2.3 Performing a Blood Glucose Test
Before you perform your first blood test, ensure the meter is set up correctly and that you perform a control
test. You need a meter with a pre-inserted black code key, a test strip, a lancing device, and a lancet.
WARNING
• During normal testing any blood glucose meter or lancing device may come in contact with blood. All
parts of the kit are considered biohazardous and can potentially transmit infectious diseases from
bloodborne pathogens, even after you have performed cleaning and disinfection.1,2
• Cleaning and disinfecting the meter and lancing device destroys most, but not necessarily all,
bloodborne pathogens.3
• The meter and lancing device should never be used by more than one person. Do not share the
meter and lancing device with anyone, including family members, due to the risk of infection from
bloodborne pathogens.1,2
• If the meter is being operated by a second person who is providing testing assistance to the user,
the meter and lancing device should be cleaned and disinfected prior to use by the second person.
• It is important to keep the meter and lancing device clean and disinfected. For instructions on how to
clean and disinfect the meter and lancing device, see Chapter 7, Cleaning and Disinfecting the Meter
and Lancing Device.
• Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling the meter, lancing device, or test strips.

2.7 Symptoms of High or Low Blood Glucose
Being aware of the symptoms of high or low blood glucose can help you understand your test results and
decide what to do if they seem unusual. Hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia may include, but are not limited
to the following symptoms:
• High blood glucose (hyperglycemia): increased thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision, drowsiness,
and/or unexplained weight loss.
• Low blood glucose (hypoglycemia): anxiety, shakiness, sweating, headache, increased hunger, dizziness,
pale skin color, sudden change in mood or irritability, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, clumsiness,
palpitations, and/or confusion.
WARNING
• If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, test your blood glucose. If your blood glucose test
result is displayed as LO or HI, contact your healthcare professional immediately.
• The meter is designed to display blood glucose results from 20 to 600 mg/dL. If a result
below 20 mg/dL or over 600 mg/dL appears on the display, call Accu-Chek Customer Care
Service Center at 1-800-688-4578.
57
54525_07006322003.indb 57
5/12/16 12:59 PM
Comparing Your Meter Result to a Lab Result
A common question is how the blood glucose results on your meter compare to the lab results. Your blood
glucose can change quickly, especially after eating, taking medication, or physical activity. If you test yourself
in the morning and then go to the healthcare professional’s office for a blood glucose test, your results will
probably not match, even if you are fasting. This is typically not a problem with your meter, it just means that
time has elapsed and your blood glucose has changed.
If you want to compare your meter result to the lab result, you must be fasting. Take your meter to the
healthcare professional’s office, and test yourself by fingerstick within five minutes of having blood drawn
from your arm by a healthcare professional. Keep in mind that the lab uses different technology than the
meter, and that blood glucose meters for self testing generally read somewhat lower than the lab result.
If you are fasting and you do a fingerstick test within five minutes of having your blood drawn, here are the
general guidelines to compare your meter result to the lab result:
• If your blood glucose is below 75 mg/dL, your results generally should fall within ±15 mg/dL of the lab
result.
• If your blood glucose is equal to or over 75 mg/dL, your results generally should fall within ±20 % of the
lab result.

3.2 Why Perform Control Tests
Performing a control test lets you know the meter and test strips are working properly to give reliable blood
glucose test results. You should perform a control test when:
• You open a new test strip box.
• You left the test strip container open.
• You want to check the meter and test strips.
• Your test strips were stored in extreme temperatures, humidity, or both.
• You dropped the meter.
• Your test result does not match how you feel.
• You want to check if you are performing the test correctly.
61
54525_07006322003.indb 61
5/12/16 12:59 PM
3.3 About the Control Solutions
• Only use Accu-Chek Aviva control solutions.
• The meter automatically recognizes the control solution.
• The control test results are not displayed in the diary.
• Write the date you opened the control solution bottle on the bottle label. The solution is good for 3 months
from that date or until the “Use by” date on the bottle label, whichever comes first.
• Do not use control solution that is past the “Use by” date.
• The solution can stain clothing. If you spill it, wash your clothes with soap and water.
• Close the bottle tightly after use.

Troubleshooting Checks
Actions
1. Were either the test strips or control solutions
expired?
Discard the test strips or control solutions if either is
past the Use By date. If the control solution was
opened more than 3 months ago, discard it. Repeat
the control test with an unexpired test strip and an
unexpired control solution.
2. Did you wipe the tip of the control solution bottle
before use?
Wipe the tip of the bottle with a tissue. Repeat the
control test with a new test strip and a fresh drop of
control solution.
3. Were the caps on the test strip container and the
control solution bottle always closed tightly?
Replace the test strips or control solutions if you
think either was uncapped for some time and repeat
the control test.
4. Was the test strip used immediately after it was
removed from the test strip container?
Repeat the control test with a new test strip and a
fresh drop of control solution.
5. Were the test strips and control solutions stored in Repeat the control test with a properly stored test
a cool, dry place?

4.1 Overview
Analyzing your blood glucose test 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. The reports the meter displays help you get the most
from your Accu-Chek Aviva Expert meter.
From the diary records stored in the meter, you are able to view a specific blood glucose test record with
its attributes (e.g., meal time, carbs, health event, bolus. and basal insulin). In addition, for a specific diary
record, you are able to change or add to its attributes.
The meter generates reports, such as blood glucose averages with standard deviations for the time period
you select (e.g., the past 7 days or the past 30 days). Graphs can be a good way to view your blood glucose
test results. The meter can display a line graph to depict blood glucose record trends, a graph showing result
ranges for a standard day or a standard week, and a pie chart with different colors to illustrate the amount of
test results within, above, or below your blood glucose target range.
NOTE
• You must be the only user of the meter, because the diary data will be incorrect if the meter is
shared.
• Blood glucose and bG are interchangeable and mean the same thing.

Storing Test Results
The meter automatically stores up to 1,000 diary records with the time and date. You can review up to
250 diary records on the meter or up to 1,000 diary records using a computer with compatible software.
Diary records are stored from the newest to the oldest. It is very important to have the correct time and
date set. Having the correct time and date setting helps ensure accurate interpretation of blood glucose test
results by you and your healthcare professional.
Each diary record can contain:
• Date and time
• Blood glucose test result
• Meal time (events)
• Carbs
• Health event
• Bolus Insulin
• Basal Insulin
You can display filtered diary data in graphical or table format.

NOTE
• Do not change your therapy based on one individual record or test result in the diary.
• This chapter shows sample screens. The screens may look slightly different from the screens on the
meter. If you have any questions about the meter screens, contact Accu-Chek Customer Care Service
Center at 1-800-688-4578.
• The information in the diary is saved when you replace the batteries. You need to check the time and
date after you replace the batteries. For more information on changing the batteries, see Chapter 8,
Maintenance.
• Once 1,000 records are in the diary memory, adding a new record causes the oldest diary record to
be deleted.
• The control results are stored in memory, but cannot be reviewed on the meter.
• Before reviewing diary records or control results with software, the stored diary records must first be
downloaded to a compatible software application. For product availability, please contact Accu-Chek
Customer Care Service Center at 1-800-688-4578.
• Control results are not used in any report or graph.

30, and 60 U. The indicator displayed is based on the single largest bolus insulin amount delivered for the
time range chosen. For example, if the largest bolus delivered during the chosen time range is 8 U, then the
meter will scale the upper graph to be between 0 and 15 U.
• On the right side of the graph, the Maximum Carbs Amount Indicator is a horizontal line with the
corresponding value shown below it. The purpose of this indicator is to scale the bottom portion of the graph
for the Carb Value dark orange bars. The Maximum Carbs Amount Indicator values available on the meter are
30, 60, 120, 180, and 240 g, or the equivalent scale for BE, KE, or CC. The indicator displayed is based on
the single largest carbs amount for the time range chosen. For example, if the largest carbs amount for the
chosen time range is 86 g, then the meter will scale the lower graph to be between 0 and 120 g.

5.5 Setting Bolus Advice for the First Time
Set Up Bolus Advice
If you did not set up bolus advice when you went through the Setup Wizard and have now decided to utilize
bolus advice, proceed with this section. Once you do set up bolus advice, you cannot turn it off.
It is suggested that you review the information in the Getting Started Guide before continuing. Prior to
setting up time blocks for bolus advice, it is recommended that you decide how many time blocks you
need and also determine the start/end times. Talk to your healthcare professional about arranging your
time blocks to help best manage your diabetes. For each time block, you can set up different blood glucose
target ranges, carb ratios, and insulin sensitivities to accommodate your differing insulin needs throughout
the day.
WARNING
• Bolus advice should be used only if you are using U100, rapid-acting insulin for bolus dosing.
• Do not use bolus advice with Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) or any other intermediate-acting
insulin.
• Do not use bolus advice if basal insulin dose is unstable.
• Long-acting insulin should not be used as a meal bolus or as a correction bolus.

Bolus Advice Options
Meal Rise, Snack Size, Acting Time, and Offset Time are Bolus Advice Options. Below are detailed
descriptions of each of these settings.
Meal Rise
During or after meals, an increase in blood glucose levels is considered normal, or “allowed,” within a
certain range, even though a meal bolus has been delivered. Enter the maximum increase in your blood
glucose test result that is to be tolerated without an additional correction bolus.
Snack Size
The snack size is the amount of carbohydrates that is not to be counted as a regular meal with the expected
meal rise. In this case (in contrast to regular meals), an increase in your blood glucose test result is not
tolerated since the meal rise factor is not triggered for bolus advice calculations.
Acting Time
The acting time is the period of time from the start of the meal rise or the delivery of a correction bolus until
your blood glucose level is expected to return to the target level. You can adjust the length of the acting time
to your individual needs, within a specified time interval (1½ hours to 8 hours).
Offset Time
Offset time takes into account the expected delay for the blood glucose level to actually fall during the
acting time of insulin in the body.

5.6 Setting Time Blocks, Health Events, Advice Options: Bolus
Advice Set Up
If bolus advice has been set up, use this section for:
• Adding or removing time blocks
• Changing the time of day when time blocks occur
• Changing the values for target range, carb ratio, and insulin sensitivity for any time block
• Changing health event percentages
• Changing advice options (meal rise, snack size, acting time, offset time)
Before continuing, it is recommended that you review the Getting Started Guide, determine how many time
blocks you need, and determine the start/end times for each time block. To help best manage your diabetes,
talk to your healthcare professional about arranging your time blocks, including setting up different blood
glucose target ranges, carb ratios, and insulin sensitivities for each time block.

WARNING
• Using batteries other than those supplied or recommended for use with the meter may significantly
reduce the life of the batteries. Batteries other than those recommended may leak and corrode
the battery contacts within the meter. Using batteries not supplied or recommended may void the
warranty.
• Replace all batteries of a set at the same time. Newly purchased batteries should not be mixed with
partially exhausted ones. Batteries of different electrochemical systems, grades, or brands should
not be mixed. Failure to observe these precautions may result in some batteries in a set being driven
beyond their normal exhaustion point and thus increase the probability of leakage.
• Once new batteries are inserted in the meter as directed, do not remove them until they need to be
replaced. Removing and reinserting good batteries may cause issues with the internal operations of
the meter.

NOTE
• Alkaline batteries are recommended for use with the meter.
• After you change the batteries, the meter prompts you to confirm the time and date settings.
• It is a good idea to have spare, packaged batteries available.
• All test results, diary information, and settings are saved in the meter memory when the batteries are
replaced.
• Rechargeable batteries may be used in the meter. However, rechargeable batteries may not maintain
the same battery life as non-rechargeable batteries.
• When the Low Battery warning appears:
• If vibrate is set to On, it is disabled until the batteries are replaced.
• If the backlight level is set to high, the medium backlight level is used until the batteries are
replaced.
• If the beeper level is set to high, the medium beeper level is used until the batteries are replaced.

8.4 Maintenance and Testing
• The meter needs little or no maintenance with normal use. It automatically tests its own systems every
time you turn it on and lets you know if something is wrong. For detailed information on troubleshooting the
meter, see Chapter 9, Troubleshooting.
• To test the meter display, turn off the meter, and then press and hold the + button. The display cycles
through colors (red, blue, green, and white). If any part of the display does not change colors, contact
Accu-Chek Customer Care Service Center at 1-800-688-4578.
• If you drop the meter or think it is not giving accurate results, ensure your test strips and control solution
have not expired, and then perform a control test.
• Perform a control test with each new vial of test strips.

10.4 Product Safety Information
WARNING
Choking hazard. Small parts. Keep away from children under the age of 3 years.
Electromagnetic Compatibility
This meter meets the electromagnetic immunity requirements as per EN ISO 15197 Annex A. The chosen
basis for electrostatic discharge immunity testing was basic standard IEC 61000-4-2. In addition, it meets
the electromagnetic emissions requirements as per EN 61326. Its electromagnetic emission is thus low.
Interference from other electrically driven equipment is not to be anticipated.
Performance Analysis
The Accu-Chek Aviva Expert system (Accu-Chek Aviva Expert meter with Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test strips) is
calibrated with venous blood containing various levels of glucose. The reference values are obtained using
the hexokinase method. For method comparison, the results were compared with results obtained using the
hexokinase method with deproteinization (automatic analyzer). The hexokinase method is traceable to an
NIST standard.

Acting Time
The period of time from the start of the meal rise or the delivery of a
correction bolus until your blood glucose level is expected to return to the
target level.
Advice Options
Factors that influence bolus advice calculations including meal rise,
snack size, acting time, and offset time.
After High bG Reminder
A reminder to retest your blood glucose. When enabled, this reminder
occurs after a high blood glucose test result.
After Low bG Reminder
A reminder to retest your blood glucose. When enabled, this reminder
occurs after a low blood glucose test result.
After Meal Reminder
A reminder to retest your blood glucose. When enabled, this reminder
occurs after a meal. For this reminder to occur, you must enter
carbohydrate data greater than the snack size amount.
Alarm
Audible or vibrating (silent) notification indicating a reminder, warning, or
error.

Basal
A dose of long-acting insulin intended to maintain normal blood glucose
levels between meals and at night.
bG Test Reminders
Reminders to retest your blood glucose after a high blood glucose test
result, after a low blood glucose test result, or after a meal.
bG Threshold
A bG test reminder setting. The upper limit for your blood glucose for a
high bG test reminder and the lower limit for your blood glucose for a low
bG test reminder.
Blood Glucose (bG)
The level of glucose in blood.
Bolus
The delivery of insulin all at once rather than slowly throughout the day,
usually used to compensate for meals or high blood glucose.
Bolus Advice
When enabled, bolus advice provides recommendations on the amount of
insulin for food intake and for correcting blood glucose levels that are not
within your target range.
Bolus Advice Options
See Advice Options.
Carb Ratio
The amount of insulin necessary to account for a certain number of
carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates (or Carbs)
Carbohydrate foods include sugars and starches. Carbohydrates can
raise blood glucose levels slowly or rapidly. Carbohydrates are generally
counted to calculate a bolus insulin dose.

Control Result
Value displayed on meter as the result of a control test. When the Control
Result is within the range shown on the label of the test strip container,
then the test strips and the meter are working properly.
Control Test
A meter test using control solution which lets you know that the meter
and test strips are working properly.
Current Date
Refers to the date you set through the menu Settings and then in the
Time/Date screen.
Current Time
Refers to the time you set through the menu Settings and then in the
Time/Date screen.
Day
Period of time starting at 12:00 am and ending at 11:59 pm.
End Time
The end time of a time block.
Health Events
A pop-up menu selection (Exercise 1, Exercise 2, Stress, Illness,
Premenstrual, or Fasting) that allows information to be stored with a
blood glucose test result or in a diary record and percentages that could
adjust bolus advice recommendations for your current health status or
activities.
HI
The test result is above the meter’s measurement range.

Hyper
Hyperglycemia: an abnormally high level of glucose in the blood.
Hyper Warning Limit
When your blood glucose test result is above the hyper warning limit, a
warning is displayed.
Hypo
Hypoglycemia: an abnormally low level of glucose in the blood.
Hypo Warning Limit
When your blood glucose test result is below the hypo warning limit, a
warning is displayed.
Insulin Increment
The meter rounds off the insulin amount to be delivered, which the meter
calculates if bolus advice is set up, or when you manually enter bolus and
basal insulin data into the diary. The insulin increment can be set to 0.5
or 1 U.
Insulin Sensitivity
The amount of insulin necessary to lower your blood glucose by a certain
amount.
Ketones
A by-product or waste product when your body burns stored fat for
energy. Ketones are produced when there is not enough insulin to help
your body use glucose for energy. Without enough insulin, glucose builds
up in the blood.
Key Lock
A meter function which disables the keys (buttons) in order to prevent its
unintended use.

Term
Definition
LO
The test result is below the meter’s measurement range.
Max Bolus
The maximum amount of bolus insulin to be delivered at one time. A
bolus that is larger than the max bolus amount requires an additional
confirmation. This serves as a safety measure against unintended large
boluses. You should ask the advice of your HCP for delivering large doses
of insulin.
Meal Rise
During or after meals, an increase in blood glucose levels is considered
normal, or “allowed,” within a certain range, even though a meal bolus
has been delivered. A meal rise is in effect for a specified time period.
Meal Time
A pop-up menu selection (pre-meal, post-meal, bedtime, or other) that
allows information to be stored with a blood glucose test or in a diary
record.
Meter
Blood glucose meter.
Note
Additional information.
NPH Insulin
Neutral Protamine Hagedorn. An intermediate-acting insulin that, on
average, starts to lower blood glucose within 1 to 2 hours after injection. It
has its strongest effect 6 to 10 hours after injection but keeps working
about 10 hours after injection. Also called N insulin.

Offset Time
Offset time takes into account the expected delay for the blood glucose
level to actually fall during the acting time of insulin in the body. It
describes the first time period within the acting time.
Pre-Mixed Insulin
A commercially produced combination of two different types of insulin.
Remind After
A bG test reminder setting. The amount of time after a high blood glucose
test result, after a low blood glucose test result, or after a meal you want
the reminder to occur.
Reminder
When enabled, reminders occur to remind you to test your blood glucose,
to retest your blood glucose or of an event or activity.
Snack Size
The amount of carbohydrates that is not to be counted as a regular meal
with the expected meal rise.
Snooze
Delay of some reminders for a defined time period.
Soft Keys
Two buttons under the meter display used to navigate through the user
interface. Just above each soft key, the meter display shows the
selection (i.e., Save, Cancel, Back, etc.).
Standard Deviation
As it is used in this owner’s booklet, standard deviation measures how
widely spread the bG test results are (e.g., if the bG test results are close
to the bG average, then the standard deviation is small).
