- Severe dehydration and excessive water loss may cause false low results. If you believe you are suffering from severe dehydration, consult a healthcare professional immediately.
- Test results below 3.3 mmol/L*1 mean low blood glucose (hypoglycemia). Test results greater than 13.3 mmol/L*2 mean high blood glucose (hyperglycemia). If you get results below 3.3 mmol/L or above 13.3 mmol/L, and do not have symptoms, first repeat the test. If you have symptoms or continue to get results that fall below 3.3 mmol/L or above 13.3 mmol/L, follow the treatment advice of your healthcare professional.
- Apply only capillary whole blood sample to the absorbent hole. Applying other substances to the absorbent hole will cause inaccurate results.
- If you are experiencing symptoms that are not consistent with your blood glucose test results and you have followed all instructions described in this owner’s manual, call your healthcare professional.
- Inaccurate results may occur in severely hypotensive individuals or patients in shock. Inaccurate low results may occur for individuals experiencing a hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar state, with or without ketosis. Critically ill patients should not be tested with blood glucose meters.
- Please refer to the test strip package insert for additional important information.
