Blood Sugar Premier

The first tip is to start Blood Sugar Premier Review with a clean meter. Meters are very delicate and even a small amount of dust, dirt or debris can alter its results. Always make sure to wipe your meter off before you use it. This is especially true if it has been in a purse or pocket. The second tip is to treat your meter delicately. Allowing it to bounce around in your car, in your gym bag, in your pocket or dropping it on the floor, could damage it and effect its accuracy. Meters come with protective carrying cases for a reason... adding an extra layer of protective only makes good sense. The third tip is not to treat your meter like you do your TV remote. When your remote acts up, what's your first reaction? To smack it with your hand. Glucose meters don't like that and will react by giving false readings; if they work at all. The fourth tip is to make sure you use enough blood on the test strip. If you aren't feeling well or you're in a hurry because of hypoglycemia setting in, it's easy to not measure out enough blood for it to register accurately. Tip No. 5: The fifth tip is to check your test strips. Test strips also need to be kept clean and free from damage and they need to be within their expiration date. Storing them at room temperature is also highly recommended if you want them to perform at their best. If you take a reading and you doubt it's legitimacy, then by all means take it again. Meters are not 100 percent foolproof. They can make simple mistakes just like humans. If you retake the reading and it is normal, then disregard the first one. If you need to borrow someone's elses meter, it is not a good idea to borrow another person's device to prick your finger. One small drop of blood left on the device can cause contamination if it is infected. This is how an outbreak of Hepatitis B in a hospital ward was caused... although the lancet was changed between each diabetic. For centuries many in Europe and Asia have written of what they believed to be the health benefits of drinking tea. As early as 400 A.D. tea was grown in China as a medicinal beverage. According to recent studies, historical beliefs about tea could well have some validity. Drinking tea has been associated with a lowered risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. A study published in PLoS One, May 2012 reported the results of a study of various levels of tea drinking and Type 2 diabetes.
