Ascensia Contour Next One Diabetes blood test meters

KITLIVING

The three-range colour indicator helps

to take the guesswork out of your blood

glucose numbers by telling you whether

your blood glucose results are low, in

range or high. The low and high limits

you set apply to all glucose test results.

This includes tests taken before or after

meal times, medications, and around any

activities that may affect blood glucose.

Check with your healthcare professional

about setting the low and high limits that

are best for you.

The OneTouch Reveal mobile app

highlights your patterns using colourful

and easy to understand visuals. Each

time you test using the OneTouch Verio

Flex blood test meter (which is Bluetooth

enabled) your results transfer automatically

over to the OneTouch Reveal mobile app.

Its electronic logbook contains up to 12

months of results and is colour-coded by

the ColourSure technology in the meter

so that patterns become easy to spot.

You can check results over different time

periods (e.g. 14 days) assess progress.

From your phone you then can send

your results to your healthcare professional

or to a partner, carer or member of your

family if you wish.

The app is available to download from

the Apple App Store and GooglePlay

Store and works with iOS and Android

phones or tablets. (There is also a website

version of OneTouch Reveal for those not

wanting to use a smartphone.)

Standards met

New research published in two leading

diabetes journals demonstrated accuracy

and reliability of the OneTouch Verio Flex

blood glucose monitoring system, and

when the system was used with the

OneTouch Reveal mobile app, it was

associated with significant improvements

in glycemic control.

In a study just published in the Journal

of Diabetes Science and Technology,

leading experts in self-monitoring of blood

glucose tested the OneTouch Verio Flex

blood glucose monitoring system and

found that the "new system showed a

high level of measurement accuracy." All

three lots tested met and exceeded the

minimum requirements of the International

Organization for Standardization (ISO)

15197:2013 standard for system

accuracy.

Another study published in the

August 2017 issue of JMIR Diabetes

randomly assigned 128 adults with

sub-optimally controlled Type 1 and

Type 2 diabetes based on HbA1C into

two groups: One group switched from

their current blood glucose monitoring

meter to the OneTouch Verio Flex blood

glucose monitoring system; the other

group switched from their current meter

to the OneTouch Verio Flex blood glucose

monitoring system combined with the

OneTouch Reveal mobile app.

Results in both groups suggested

improved glycemic control at 12 and 24

weeks in both the meter-only and meterplus-mobile-app

groups compared to

baseline, further finding that:

As many as 88% of the study subjects

said the Colour Range Indicator on the

OneTouch Verio Flex blood glucose

monitoring system together with the

OneTouch Reveal mobile app could help

them stay on track between visits to their

health care provider. Improvements using

the app were greatest in the participants

with Type 2 diabetes and those who

received the highest number of healthcare

provider text messages.
