FORA 6 Connect Blood Ketone and Blood Glucose Testing Meter KitThe Fore 6 Connect is convenient for Type I and Ketoacidosis but also works well for those with Type II diabetes who simply want to keep track of their blood glucose. It is a really impressive blood glucose monitor on its own but when you factor in the ability to also test ketone, this steams ahead of the competition. 

It does everything the best models do including offering a port light, large backlit display and an eject button. On top of that you get auto synching of data to a very capable smartphone app that works across Android and iOS. 

Local device storage is the best we’ve seen while battery life is optimized by the use of an easily available AAA battery. The case that Fora throws is is just a nice bonus that makes carrying everything on the go super simple.

The accuracy of the Fora 6 Connect is excellent. In fact the meter goes beyond the standards of the ISO15197:2013 standard.

This could be thanks to the addition of gold, a highly sensitive conductor, in the testing strips.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

Can hematocrit levels affect the result?

Hematocrit levels can affect results whether the sample is obtained from a forearm or a finger stick. Hematocrit levels less than 30% may cause falsely high readings and hematocrit levels greater than 55% may cause falsely low readings. If the patient does not know their hematocrit level, they should consult their health care professional. Hematocrit levels may be affected by too much kneading during puncture site preparation.

How do I maintain my blood glucose meter?

  • Keep your meter clean.
  • Test your meter regularly with control solution.
  • Store your meter and supplies properly.
  • Heat and humidity can damage test strips.
  • Close the vial cap promptly after removing a test strip.

Can I test blood glucose from sites other than my fingertips?

FORA blood glucose meter systems allow you to obtain a blood sample from an alternative site such as your palm, forearm, upper arm, calf, or thigh.

Notice: alternative site test is not fit for everyone, it may have some limitations if you have just taken insulin and:

  • You think your blood glucose is low.
  • The test results do not agree with how you feel.
  • You have an ill feeling.
  • You are unaware of symptoms when you become hypoglycemic.
  • Alternative site results may be different than those from the fingertips when blood glucose levels are changing rapidly, such as after a meal or during and after exercise.
