article imageBlood glucose meter recalled due to faulty results

By Tim Sandle     Mar 18, 2014 in Health
The medical device company Abbott is conducting a recall for its range of blood glucose meters because the devices may produce mistakenly low blood glucose results.
The devices affected are the FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter and the FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meter. When used with the Abbott FreeStyle test strips, the FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter and the FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meter may produce erroneous results, where these results are artificially low.
The recall has been announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Keeping an accurate idea of blood glucose levels is an integral part of successful diabetes management. Blood glucose meters allow people to do this. While urine testing remains important (to check for the presence of ketones), having an accurate blood sugar meter makes sense for people managing diabetes.
