Testing your blood sugars

< Back to Surgery Health Resources

Monitor and record blood glucose (sugar) levels as advised by your clinician. The number tells us how much glucose is circulating in your blood at certain points of the day.

There are a variety of blood glucose testing meters available with varying functions and buttons. The meters provided are either GlucoRx or GlucoFix. Extra testing strips, lancet devices and sharps boxes will be added to your repeat medication list and can be ordered in the usual way. You may also have blood ketone test strips which are used to test ketone levels rather than glucose. See our Prescriptions page for more information.
