The PTS Diagnostics Glucose Test Strip measures glucose (GLU).

Blood glucose is a simple sugar that comes from the breakdown of carbohydrates. It is the primary source of energy used by the body. As we digest carbohydrates, glucose enters the blood, raising blood sugar levels and stimulating the pancreas to release insulin which helps the cells absorb glucose for energy or storage. If blood glucose levels rise too rapidly or too often, the cells become ineffective in their response to insulin leading to metabolic syndrome and eventually diabetes. It is important to test blood glucose periodically to assess your body’s ability to process it effectively.

Although heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US, only 20% of those cases can be attributed to genetic risk factors. By focusing on diet, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and regularly testing cholesterol levels, patients can be proactive in reducing their chances for heart disease.

The MEMoChip is the key link between the test strip and the analyzer.  A MEMo Chip is included with each vial of test strips and contains specific calibration and other information that enables the analyzer to “read” each particular test strip.
