Nova Max Plus Blood Glucose Meter Kit
There are ample meters on the market but only one or two, one of them being the Nova Max Plus Meter, have the ability to test blood glucose and ketone levels. Blood glucose levels, when taken at various times of the day, provide crucial information for the person with diabetes and his or her healthcare team. Being able to take a blood sample for your level of ketones can save your life.
Nova Max Plus Meter features:
By testing your glucose levels at various times of the day you will provide yourself and your healthcare team with enough information to determine the impact your medications, food, activity, stress level, etc. have on your body. From these readings, adjustments in your current treatment are more viable.
When your glucose levels are high (approximately 300 mg/dL and above), your body is unable to receive energy from glucose since all that energy remains in the bloodstream and is unable to feed the body’s cells like the brain, muscles, liver, kidneys, etc. The body must be fed in order to stay alive so it starts using fat for energy in the form of ketones. The dangerous complication from ketone production and high blood glucose levels is known as DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) which can lead to illness or death.
