One Touch Diabetic Supplies and Products

One Touch diabetic supplies include a wide variety of products such as blood glucose meters, insulin pumps, test strips, lancets, and other accessories. Blood glucose meters are devices that test a small blood sample and display the results on a screen. Meters feature several settings (language, date, time, etc.) which come pre-set but may be modified. The blood sample can be obtained from different places like the fingertip, palm, or forehead. The sample is put in contact with a test strip, and the results are available as soon as five seconds later. Once the test is complete, the strip must be removed and the meter turned off. 
 
The test strips are inserted into the device while the meter is off, and must be handled with clean, dry hands. Care must be taken so that the strip is not bent. Test strips are disposable and have an expiration date. Expired test strips should not be used, lest the accuracy of the test is compromised. The blood sample is extracted with the help of a lancet or lancing device. Like the test strips, a new lancet should be used each time. A used lancet may lose its sterility and could lead to an infection. Users should not share lancets, and always discard them appropriately.
 
Though One Touch is a proficient source of diabetic supplies and products, it isn’t the only one. Thankfully, there is a very healthy competition in the diabetic supply market; competition that only benefits the consumer. For example, you are able to find an ample variety of diabetic testing supplies at Discount Medical Supplies.
