Diabetes Urine Test Strips
As part of an everyday routine blood glucose management routine, diabetes urine test strips allow those individuals with diabetes to gain better control of their individual health. As one of the easiest ways to measure sugar in urine, these urine testing strips are a great portable, discreet and easy way to stay ahead of your insulin needs or make better dietary and lifestyle choices throughout the day.
Sugar in Urine Tests
Glucose testing strips work by determining the amount of urine ketones as well as the glucose levels in the urine. Although not as reliable or as accurate as blood glucose test strips, these diabetes urine test strips are still great, back-up ways for diabetic individuals to test their sugar or ketone levels while on the go.
To use these urine analysis test strips, it is imperative to receive a "clean catch," because these tests can easily be contaminated by bacteria and other factors during the collection process. The strip will change color due to the presence of several substances in the urine: ketones, protein, pH, blood and others. It is important to read the directions on the side of the urine glucose test strip box to know what each individual color means on the blood glucose test strip pad. This color is your window into your body's functioning: it should be used to make further choices for your diabetes care.
