Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, an accurate reading of your blood glucose level (BGL) is vital. Washing your hands before testing seems like a simple solution to remove all impurities, such as fruit juice, food and dirt. However, in the rush of daily life, when you're in the car or at a picnic, this isn't always easy.
Diabete-ezy Test-wipes are made from hospital grade, alcohol free ingredients and are designed to remove any impurities from the fingertip safely and effectively. Test-wipes can also be used to hygienically remove blood after testing and can be used for site preparation for an insulin pump. The solution used in the Test-wipes is 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate.
The Refill Pack consists of 8 x 25 wipe refills which is a total of 200 wipes and is packaged in a resealable carton.
* Carry them with your meter - simple, portable and effective.
One of our experiences with not having clean fingers before testing...
It was Freddie’s Day Care day, I received a phone call at lunch time alerting me to the fact that his BGL was 21mml. I know that he was 6.2mml at morning tea and know that what he ate at Morning Tea would not raise his levels this much. I asked if he had washed his hands before testing and they said that he had. Usually we would give him an extra insulin injection to bring a level of 21mml down but I asked if they could use the Test-wipes I had in his meter case to wipe his finger and retest. His level came down to 13mml.
I often wonder what would have happened if I had not got them to retest and they had just given him the injection……we might have spent the night in hospital because Fred may have had a severe hypo. Also never trust a 3 year old when they say they have washed their hands!!
"Thank you for the test wipe they are the best. They will make life so much easier for my daughter at school and on trip in the car."
"Thank you so much for the prompt reply for my order. The Test-wipes are a fantastic product and exactly what I need. They have filled a void in Diabetes care."
"Dear Elissa, I just received the Starter Pack of the Test wipes.....They are wonderful, my Daughter thinks they are just "cool", they are very easy & useful, so much better than wetting the end of a tissue, I know I won't have any problems with getting her to check her BSL's now... Thank you for a wonderful product and making life with Diabetes that much easier."
