Testing Demonstration with Your Keto-Mojo Bluetooth Meter
Mister Mojo here and I’m going to take you through testing your glucose and your ketones with your Bluetooth integrated meter.
Prepping Your Test Location
So the first thing we’ll do is, wash our hands and get our hands ready. I’m going to use a little alcohol swab to start off. If you’re at home, you can definitely use some nice, warm water. So give a nice cleaning of the area that you want to test. Put that to the side. The next thing I’m going to to do is try to get the alcohol to blow off and to dry off. So I like to test and prepare my lancet device.
Prepping Your Lancet
We’re going to place the lancet in the top here, twist off the top, get that ready. Place the top back on. Click it into play. I like my setting in the Goldilock zone which is about number three for me. Pull back that so it’s ready to fire. That’s the fire button. And we’re ready to go for the lancet device.
Prepping The Strips
I take out my glucose strip first. I like to do glucose first because it’s the quickest of the tests, place it into the meter, and the next thing I do is get my ketone strip out we we are ready to rock and roll for the next text. And so now the meter has had chance to check the strip. You see that the blood droplet icon is flashing, ready-to-go.
Ready To Test
Now we just use the lancet device, place it onto the finger like so. Now this first little bead that comes on out like that, you can just do a gentle squeeze onto it, not too much. For consistency, you can wipe that first droplet away and then you can come on through and use this second droplet. Why do we do that? Because there’s usually a little bit of interstitial glucose in that first little droplet. So we want to make sure that we’re getting the capillary glucose. When testing it’s always good to actually bring the strip close to that little bead of blood. Don’t put it on top of the strip, just let it gently sip on up from the tip, like this. Perfect. Five seconds, we’re going to get our glucose. 84, really nice. I have an ejection button on side here so I can just drop that strip and dispose of it appropriately.
Then the next thing I do, is I place my ketone strip in. It’ll show CH for checking, and then the first thing it will show, will be the code that matches the code on the side of the vial, 682, and I know I’ve got vial 682 here so we’ve got a match-up which is fantastic. And then I just gently sip the blood in like this, to get a good fill, and in 10 seconds, I will have my ketone measurement. There it is, 3.2, really good. And that’s how we test with the Keto-Mojo Bluetooth Integrated meter.
