Healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a normal body weight and avoiding tobacco use can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes, the prevalent type around.
Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps keeps your blood sugar level from getting too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia). It's like a "key" for this process! Lack or insufficient production of insulin, or even an inability of the body to properly use insulin is a primary cause for Diabetes.

On this chart below you can see how easy it is to obtain a visual glucose result with the test strip, but we must emphasize that the "wiping and timing steps" during testing are very important! Apply drop of blood to strip (then wait for 30 secs), wipe off extra blood on strip (then wait another 30 secs), and read result by comparing colour of the strip to the template result colour chart provided. It's that easy! This product can be stored at room temperature, so it can be used in any setting, e.g. mines, home, surgery, rural clinics, mobile clinics, pharmacies, hospital wards, schools, workplace, correctional facilities, sporting academies...anywhere really!
