FreeStyle Optium Β Ketone 10 Test Strips
Test strips are used in conjunction with a blood glucose meter to monitor blood glucose levels
Freestyle Optium Beta Ketone Test Strips are used to detect the level of ketones in blood by people with Type 1 diabetes who want to check that their ketone levels don’t get too high.
Significantly raised levels of ketones in people with type 1 diabetes may need emergency medical treatment.
In addition, measuring ketones can be useful for people following a low carb, ketogenic diet.
- Only a tiny amount of blood is needed – 1.5ul
- Individually foil wrapped minimising the possibility of contamination from external factors
- Can apply blood sample on the top or at the side of the strip
Pack size: 10 strips per box
Compatible with: Freestyle Optium meter (previously called Optium Xceed)
How to use: Wash hands with soap and water and dry thoroughly. Insert test strip into meter. A flashing test strip and flashing drop of blood will appear on the screen. Lance your finger and apply a small drop of blood to the left or right side of your test strip. The meter will beep once when enough blood has been applied and a countdown will begin. The meter will beep twice and a result will appear with the time and date on the bottom of the screen.
