What will it help you with?

Blood glucose and blood sugar are interchangeable terms, and both are crucial to the health of the body; especially for people with diabetes.

Blood sugar levels are literally the amount of glucose in the blood, sometimes called the serum glucose level. Usually, this amount is expressed as millimoles per litre (mmol/l) and stay stable amongst people without diabetes at around 4-8mmol/L.

Spikes in blood sugar will occur following meals, and levels will usually be at their lowest in the early mornings. When it comes to people with diabetes, blood sugar fluctuates more widely.

What does it Do?

Understanding blood glucose level ranges can be a key part of diabetes self-management.This page states 'normal' blood sugar ranges and blood sugar ranges for adults and children with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and blood sugar ranges to determine people with diabetes.If a person with diabetes has a meter, test strips and is testing, it's important to know what the blood glucose level means.Recommended blood glucose levels have a degree of interpretation for every individual and you should discuss this with your healthcare team.

For the majority of healthy individuals, normal blood sugar levels are as follows:

Between 4.0 to 5.4 mmol/L (72 to 99 mg/dL) when fasting [361]

Up to 7.8 mmol/L (140 mg/dL) 2 hours after eating

For people with diabetes, blood sugar level targets are as follows:

Before meals: 4 to 7 mmol/L for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes

After meals: under 9 mmol/L for people with type 1 diabetes and under 8.5mmol/L for people with type 2 diabetes

Why should I use this?

The Accu-Chek Active test strips only require a very small blood sample to perform a blood glucose test – just 1-2µl of blood with simple capillary action draws blood into the strip for fast, reliable blood glucose testing. Blood can be applied to the test strip outside of the meter allowing for greater flexibility and is particularly useful for people who have dexterity issues.
