What is Glucose Control Solution?

Control solution can be explained as "fake blood" that contains a known amount of glucose. It is a safe and reliable method to test the accuracy of glucose meters and test strips. These glucose control solutiona are highly recommended to maintain the health and well-being of diabetes patients. This glucose liquid is put on the test strip just like a normal blood sample and result is recorded to check whether the test strip and meter are working properly. Health Products For You offers a wide range of glucose control solutions from various top-selling manufacturers like Siemens Healthcare, US Diagnostics, Agamatrix, Roche Diagnostics, etc.

How to use Control Soultion for Glucose Meter?

Use control solutions in 5 easy steps -
  1. Check the meter first: Make sure that your meter is working properly before initiating the test. To Avoid any chances of infections prefer wearing medical gloves throughout the process.
  2. Shake the vial well: The glucose control solution may be too diluted or concentrated. Inconsistent solution can affect the accuracy of result. Shake it well before using
  3. Check the strips: To check if the test strip is still good, apply a drop of control solution on the test strip. Check if the result falls between the accepted range.
  4. Look for results: If the result is in the range, you can use the rest of the strips confidently. It can be concluded that the test strips are no tainted and the meter is working properly. If the result is outside the range, repeat the test on another strip.
  5. Dispose wisely: Dispose off the used strip and store the rest of the solution in an air-tight bottle. 

Note: If the result is outside the specified range after doing step 3 and 4 multiple times, chances are that the test strips are tainted and not reliable to use.
