ACCU-CHEK Guide Me to Replace Aviva Plus
Accu-Chek Guide Me Blood Glucose Monitoring System is an easy-to-handle, simple and accurate glucose meter, and is the newest blood glucose monitoring system from the Accu–Chek brand.
The Accu-Chek Guide consists of the Accu-Chek Guide meter and Accu-Chek Guide test strips. The system is intended to quantitatively measure glucose in fresh capillary whole blood from the fingertip, palm, and upper arm as an aid in monitoring the effectiveness of glucose control.
Accu-Chek Guide me meter features spill-resistant SmartPack® vial, which allows you to place a small drop of blood anywhere along the end of Accu-Chek Guide strips to obtain accurate readings. If you download the free mySugr app from the app store and make an account, this app automatically logs readings to your phone. This helps not only your healthcare providers to manage your diabetes, but it gives you peace of mind knowing your readings are being accurately recorded.
Spill-resistant vial and simple to take just one strip
97% of patients agreed the meter was easy to use. With a fumble-free SmartPack vial, a strip that lets you place a small drop of blood anywhere along the end, and an app that automatically logs results to your phone, it’s a surprisingly simple way to manage your diabetes.
Simple to use the entire end of the test strip
The Guide test strips are smaller in size in comparison to the Aviva strips. The test strips also have a bigger tip to draw a blood sample, therefore minimizing errors and creating a more accurate reading.
Automatic logging of results to your smartphone
Accu-Chek Guide meter connects to the mySugr App for rich insight and simple analysis. This information can be shared with your healthcare providers so you can keep your readings more accurately within your target range.
You will have more confidence in the accuracy of your blood sugar results with a small (0.6 microliter) sample size of blood required with every reading.
Home glucose testing can be a lot easier with the Accu-Chek Guide Me Blood Glucose Monitoring System. According to the manufacturer, in a study performed by Diabetes Science Technology, it was discovered that 97% of patients agreed the meter was easier to use, 88% of patients agreed it was easier to remove a strip compared to standard round vial, and. 93% of patients found it easier and faster to correctly place a small amount of blood on the end of the strip.
This is a viable, trusted, and proven-to-work glucose monitoring system if you are ready to move on from your old Accu-Chek Aviva Plus System.
