Why do you need to know if I am a diabetic?
Diabetics do not have to pay VAT but unfortunately most pharmacies and retailers will require you to pay the full price including VAT and will leave you to fill out a long form to claim the VAT back. But if you buy from us, all you need to do is to confirm you are a diabetic from the drop down menu and you will be charged the price excluding VAT. You must select an option from the drop down menu to get the correct price.
*Please note that if you select "Yes I have diabetes" then you MUST provide us with your home address. This is because you are making a legal declaration which we will supply to HMRC so they need your home address details. If you want the goods delivered to an alternate address such as your work or to a storage facility and you select the non-VAT option, then you will need to send us a message with your home address before we can ship the goods*
Importance of Self-Monitoring your Blood Glucose Levels
Many people think that there is no point in self-testing because they believe that they know when their blood glucose levels are too high. Unfortunately this is often not true and unless your blood glucose level is very high, the way you feel is not always a good or accurate guide to what is happening.
The SD CodeFree Blood Glucose Monitoring System gives an accurate picture of your blood glucose level at the time of the test. It involves pricking your finger with the lancing device and putting a drop of blood on a testing strip. SD CodeFree Meter will read the result automatically. Using the Self-Test diary included in the pack to record your results will help you and your healthcare team work out whether your treatment needs to be adjusted.
Full detailed instructions are included with the meter which you should read through before using the meter but here is a quick guide:
Insert a test strip face-up into the slot on the meter. The meter will turn on automatically.
Use the lancet and lancing device to obtain a blood drop. You only need 0.9?L of blood:
Touch and hold the drop of blood to the edge of the strip until the yellow window is completely filled with blood. The blood will automatically be drawn into the strip.
The results will then be displayed in just 5 seconds.
