The Rapid Response blood glucose meter is FDA cleared & CLIA waived. It reads results within 7 seconds, needs only 0.7 microliter blood sample, supports alternate site testing, requires no-cleaning and indicates ketone warning. With the large LCD screen, palm-sized dimensions and one-key operation, the device is the most user-friendly blood glucose meter in the marketplace.

What is diabetes? Diabetes means your blood glucose is too high. You may have has one or more signs before you found out you had diabetes. Or you may have had no signs at all. A blood test to check your glucose levels will show if you have pre-diabetes or diabetes.

People can get diabetes at any age. Type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes are the 3 main kinds. Type 1 is caused by the body’s immune system attacking and destroying the beta cells; type 2 by insulin resistance; gestation diabetes by the hormones of pregnancy or the lack of insulin.

After many years, diabetes can lead to serious problems with your eyes, kidneys, nerves and gums and teeth. But the most serious problem caused by diabetes is heart disease. When you have diabetes, you are more than twice as likely as people without diabetes to have heart disease or a stroke.

The Rapid Response blood glucose meter is based Amperometric Biosensor technology.

Biosensors have been defined as compact analytical devices that bring together a biological, a biologically-derived or biomimic element to recognize the analyte. Generally speaking, when using amperometric biosensors, the analyte undergoes, or is involved in a redox reaction that can be followed by measuring the current in an electrochemical cell. The electron flux is then monitored and is proportional to the amount of the species electrochemically transformed at the electrode.

Today, this brilliant, pioneering technology has evolved, reaching the markets as blood glucose self-monitoring biosensors. It is routinely used as screening and treating diabetes – an illness whose prevalence is 4% of the population in industrialized countries – the equipment being worldwide used.
