For people with diabetes, blood glucose monitoring is a daily routine. Glucose/ blood sugar is the main supplier of energy in the body.
Simply insert the Wellion GALILEO blood glucose test strip into the illuminated test strip slot. The meter automatically activates to draw in the drop of blood at the tip of the test strip. After coutdown, the Wellion GALILEO blood glucose meter shows the current value in large digits on the backlit display.
The body can only use glucose for energy if there is sufficient insulin available at the same time. If this is lacking, the body has to resort to fatty acids as an alternative energy source - this produces ketones, which in high concentrations can lead to life-threatening diabetic ketoacidosis. Therefore, when blood sugar levels are high, the ketone level in the blood should also be measured in order to be able to prevent the development of diabetic ketoacidosis in time.
