  • iHealth Gluco is not designed to be used on newborns.
  • iHealth Gluco is not designed for analysing arterial blood, serum or plasma.
  • iHealth Gluco must be used exclusively with iHealth test strips (AGS-1000I, EGS-2003).
  • iHealth Gluco can be used at a maximum altitude of 3276 metres.
  • At levels higher than normal or at therapeutic levels, the following substances can interfere significantly (affecting the result by more than 10%), leading to an incorrect result:
    • Ascorbic acid.
    • Uric acid.
    • Paracetamol.
    • Dopamine.
    • L-dopa, etc.

When present at normal concentrations, these substances do not affect test results. However, they may affect test results if they are present at high concentrations. Do not use specimens presenting a haemolysis, jaundice or hyperlipidemia.

  • Patients being treated with oxygen therapy are likely to obtain incorrectly low readings.
  • Do not use for patients presenting a hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar syndrome, with or without ketosis.
  • Do not use for seriously ill patients.
  • Do not use for patients who are dehydrated, hypertensive, hypotensive or in shock.
  • An abnormally low or high red blood cell count (haematocrit) is likely to lead to incorrect results. If you do not know your haematocrit level, please contact your doctor.

We recommend that the blood glucose meter is regularly compared with another blood glucose meter under meticulous oversight and care by a health professional.
