- Blood Glucose Diabetic Testing Supplies make it easy to test regularly to keep glucose levels in range and prevent blood sugar dips. A meter quickly calculates the blood glucose level by inserting test strips into the meter. Make sure to purchase the test strips compatable with the meter. It only requires a small blood sample by gently pricking the finger using a lancet device like the Acti-Lance Safety Lancet.
The side effects of high blood sugar are astounding. For one, it causes dry and itchy skin. Secondly, it damages the blood vessels, leading to poor blood circulation. Good skincare and/or compression wear is important for managing these issues so that additional health problems don't arise. Vitality Medical offers a range of skin creams as well as diabetic socks with compression to control swelling so that tired and achy feet renew and bounce back.
- Infusion Set is implanted on the hip or abdomen for insulin delivery. This is an alternative method to needle injections. Due to the consistent readings obtained with an insulin pump, this minimizes the risk of glucose highs and lows. A pump and infusion system must be recommended by a doctor and requires a prescription.
