Methodology of Reagent.
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 type and the amount of electrical
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?
Patients typically feel more pain when lancing their finger pads because they have
substantially more nerve endings than other testing sights. It is reported that other
testing sites cause less pain; however, there are other limitations. Please speak to your
healthcare provider before using this method.
Use Alternate Site Testing (AST) ONLY:
1. if it has been greater than 2 hours after taking insulin.
2. if it has been greater than 2 hours after a meal.
3. if it has been greater than 2 hours after exercise.
*Do not use AST if you are pregnant or if your blood sugars are not stable.
*Do not use AST if you think your blood glucose is low or if your AST results do not
match the way you feel.
Testing Procedure for AST.
1. Please unscrew the lancing device by turning the cap counter clockwise. A clear cap

Warning: Your meter can show results either in “mg/dL” or “mmol/L” units. Mg/dL is
the unit used in the U. S., please contact the manufacturer if your meter does not
display mg/dL when you turn it on. The factory set default for the meter is mg/dL, in
the event that the meter loses power or the batteries are changed, the factory set
default is mg/dL. It is very important to use the correct unit of measurement to
properly manage your diabetes. If you live in the U.S.A. you should use mg/dL. Your
results will never have a decimal point. If you live outside the United States and use
the metric system, you should use mmol/L. Your result will always have a decimal
point.

18. Limitations.
1. Do not use for neonatal blood glucose testing.
2. Hematocrits in the range of 32~56% do not affect the blood glucose results. If you
do not know your hematocrit level, consult your healthcare professional.
3. Hemoglobin levels of 500 mg/dL or below will not interfere with blood glucose test
results.
4. Cholesterol levels up to 500 mg/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 (1,609m) 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. Reference 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.
