As the days are passing by, Diabetes and Hypoglycemia are both rising concerns globally. Conditions like diabetes cannot be cured and can be caused by majorly due to hereditary and also because of an unhealthy lifestyle. 

Various researches and scientific studies have gone behind diabetic control and glucose meters are one of the handiest inventions for diabetic patients that the medical industry has known. Glucose meters have given rise to ‘home blood glucose monitoring‘ or HBGM. One can now keep track of their blood glucose levels in the comfort of their homes.

Roche Diabetes Care Inc. is the manufacturer of Accu-Check products – is one of the leading manufacturers of blood glucose monitoring kits, as their products are very easy to operate and are handy for home blood glucose monitoring.

All the manufacturers in the market that produce glucose meters have to go through the ISO standardization test. The Accu-Check Performa Glucometer is one of the most recommended product by Roche that generates the most accurate readings. Accurate readings are important, as it’s easy for the doctor the interpret and design diets and other treatment rituals.

The model that’s inside the package feels good to hold and weighs up to 250 grams, quite light-weighted. The glucose meter relies on lithium-ion batteries for its power source and requires one lithium-ion battery to function properly. The lithium-ion battery comes pre-installed in the device and the device is good to go.

Roche has designed the Accu-Check Blood Glucose Monitoring in the simplest way possible in order to make it easily functional, for those who intend to control the effects of diabetes staying at home, doing frequent blood sugar level tests and taking better decisions in order to keep their health in good condition.

The display screen is bigger and the device generates results quite quickly, within 10 seconds.

The package comes with ten test strips which is quite low quantity for a blood glucose monitoring kit, but the test strips can be bought additionally online or offline at affordable prices which makes it quite easy for the customer.
