seconds after puncturing.
Do not test blood that runs or spreads out from the puncture site.
Do not smear blood on the test strip.
Do not press the test strip into your puncture site with force.

Test results are shown in mg/dL. You cannot change the unit of measure.
If the results appear in mmol/L by any possibility, contact your distributor
immediately. Using mmol/L may cause you to misread test results and lead
to incorrect treatment.
If “Lo” or “Hi” appears on the screen:
Repeat the test. If “Lo” or “Hi” still appears, contact your doctor or
healthcare professional. “Lo” appears if your test result is less than 10
mg/dL. “Hi” appears if your test result is more than 600 mg/dL.
If test results do not match how you feel:
Make sure you performed the test properly as explained in chapters 2 to

not match how you feel, contact your doctor or healthcare professional.
Do not ignore test results. Do not alter your blood glucose management
