Diabetes Test (3 Tests)

The SURESIGN DIABETES SCREENING TEST detects glucose in urine. It is extremely sensitive and will register small amounts of glucose (100 mg/dl). Glucose in urine is associated with early stages of diabetes and other carbohydrate metabolic diseases. By performing the test yourself at home, you can detect the presence of glucose in your urine. Normally you should have no glucose in your urine. The detection of glucose is based on the glucose oxidase-peroxidase-chromogen reaction. Apart from glucose, no other substance in urine is known to cause a positive reaction. A green to brown colour that develops on the sensor pad indicates a positive reaction and means that you have glucose in your urine. If the test is POSITIVE you should immediately consult your doctor. The clinical symptoms of diabetes include fatigue, excessive thirst and a need to urinate frequently. If you have any of these symptoms you should consult your doctor immediately whether your test result is positive or negative.

Why is this test needed?
Approximately 50% of people with diabetes don?t know they have it. Unhealthy diets, obesity and lack of exercise are the main causes of diabetes. If you have diabetes and are diagnosed early, you can be treated before illness develops. Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke and the main cause of kidney failure, limb amputations and blindness in adults. Most cases of diabetes can be treated with just dietary measures and oral medication. Early diagnosis is critical.

What does the test involve?
This test is suitable for you to do at home and contains 2 test strips. If you obtain an abnormal result with the first strip, repeat the test using the second strip This test is simple to use and takes only 60 seconds.

Introduction
This diabetes test detects the presence of glucose (sugar) in your urine. This test contains 3 test strips. If you obtain an abnormal result with the first strip, repeat the test using the second strip.

  • Product Instructions 

Why do I need this test?

This test can help identify diabetes at an early stage, before the illness causes any symptoms. It is important to detect diabetes early on so that you can begin to have treatment and reduce the risk of complications.

Precautions

  • If you are colour blind do not attempt to read the colour comparison chart.

  • Do not use this test beyond the expiry date on the plastic vial.

  • Ensure hands are thoroughly washed before carrying out test. Hands or fingers which have traces of sugar from foods or drinks could cause a false elevated result.

  • Do not carry out this test if you have been suffering with diarrhoea or vomiting. Dehydration and excessive water loss may cause an inaccurate low reading.  

Before you begin  

  • Read the entire instructions carefully.

  • Ensure you have a clock or watch ready.

 

Test Procedure

Ideally, you should perform the test about two hours after your last substantial meal.
 1. Collect fresh urine a clean dry container and test as soon as possible. If the sample cannot be tested immediately, it can be stored in the refrigerator (2-8?C) for up to 8 hours. If you store your urine, before testing, allow it to warm up by standing at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.
 2. DO NOT OPEN IN A STEAMY BATHROOM. Remove the Glucose Test Strip from the individual foil package.
 3. Examine the Test Strip prior to use. The sensor pad should be a pale green colour. Discard if sensor is damaged or discoloured.
 4. Completely immerse the test area of the Test Strip in fresh urine until sensor pad is wet.
 5. After wetting the Test Strip with urine drain any excess urine.
 6. Wait 90 seconds. Compare the colour of the Test Sensor Pad to the Colour chart provided.
 WHEN READING, HOLD THE TEST STRIP CLOSE TO COLOUR BLOCKS AND MATCH COLOUR CAREFULLY.
 
 IMPORTANT NOTE: IGNORE COLOUR CHANGES THAT OCCUR AFTER THREE MINUTES
 
 
READING THE RESULT
 
 NORMAL / NEGATIVE:
if after 90 SECONDS of wetting the Test Strip the Sensor Pad is still a very pale green colour (compare to colour chart) the test result is negative. No colour change indicates that there is no detectable glucose (sugar) in your urine.
 

 ABNORMAL / POSITIVE:
If after 90 SECONDS of wetting the Test Strip, the Sensor Pad becomes a progressively darker colour (compare to colour chart) the test is positive. Any colour change is considered a positive reaction. Call your doctor. A positive result indicates that you have glucose in your urine.
 
 CALL YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU GET ANY COLOUR CHANGE ON THE SENSOR PAD. THIS IS CONSIDERED A POSITIVE TEST FOR GLUCOSE. GLUCOSE IN URINE IS ASSOCIATED WITH DIABETES AND OTHER CARBOHYDRATE METABOLIC DISEASES. IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU GET A POSITIVE TEST RESULT.
 IF THE TEST IS NEGATIVE AND YOU CONTINUE TO EXPERIENCE ANY ABNORMAL SYMPTOMS, CONTACT YOUR DOCTOR

Normal Glucose Values
After fasting normal blood glucose values in a person without diabetes are 70-110 mg/dl (3,9 -6,1 mmol/l). Consult your doctor if a reading of less than 50mg/dl or higher than 250 mg/dl is obtained.

What do I do with the result now?
A high result means that the test has found excess glucose in your blood. This does not always mean you are diabetic. However, it is very important that you visit your doctor to discuss your test result.

If the result was low this means at this time no excess glucose was found in your blood. If the result is low and you do not have any symptoms, you do not need to do anything else. However, you should visit your doctor if the result was low but you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • More thirsty than normal

  • Passing urine frequently

  • Tiredness

  • Weight loss

  • Blurred vision

Storage
This test should be stored inside the protective vial at room temperature. Do not expose to direct sunlight.
