Aiming to give a clearer picture regarding blood test results, the Contour Next meter goes beyond basic testing while retaining simple techniques and accuracy. It features an easy to use navigation button and Contour Next test strips (PIP code 3682119). These allow you to add more blood to a test strip if you’ve under-filled it (you don’t need to put in a new one if you didn’t get enough on at first attempt). You can check 7, 14, 30 and 90-day averages, to give you an overview of your control and helps you to spot patterns in order to adapt your medication, if necessary. It has the capacity to set alarms to help you remember to test – e.g. two hours after a meal to see how things are looking outside of more usual testing times (just before meals).
