Diabetes and Glucose Self Tests
Diabetes mellitus is closely linked to the presence of cardiovascular disease, so the risk of developing a heart attack, or stroke, is two to four times bigger than the rest of the population. The cardiovascular risk in a diabetic is similar to that of a patient who has already undergone a cardiovascular event. For this reason, Prima Home Test has developed a self-testing device, the PRIMA 3in1 meter, with the aim of determining the cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose levels in blood, at home or in the clinic. The concentration of glucose is strongly influenced by some factors, such diet, medication intake, diabetes mellitus, current pregnancy and acute conditions like pancreatic dysfunctions, hormonal imbalances or people who have undergone excessive physical fatigue or a condition of prolonged fasting. It is advisable to check sugar in the blood in people who smoke, consume large quantities of alcohol or fatty foods, who are in an overweight condition or don’t perform any physical activity. The package includes 10 to 50 glucose measuring strips test. This device allows you to store up to 500 measurements, including date and time, which can be transferred to computers thanks to a specific software. A healthy lifestyle is fundamental to prevent cardiovascular diseases, closely linked to the diabetic pathology.
