  • At-Home A1C System, Self Check
  • 2 test kit. At-home results in 5 minutes. 2-3 month indication of average blood glucose. Small blood sample. Lab accurate. What does your A1C number meant? (Nathan DM, Kuenen J, Borg R, et al. Translating the A1C assay into estimated average glucose values. Diabetes Care: 2008; 31[8]: 1473-1478.) A1C measures your average blood glucose level over the past 2-3 months. For most people with diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that your A1C should be under 7%. A 1% point reduction in your A1C lowers the risk of serious complications by 40% (UKPDS 35. BMJ 2000; 321:405-12). Remember that your A1C is your big picture measurement. Don't use it for daily blood glucose measurement. This test is for home use monitoring of glycemic control in patients with diabetes. This kit contains: 1 A1CNow SelfCheck Monitor; 2 single-use cartridges; 2 shaker pouches; 1 quick reference guide; 1 overview and helpful hints; 1 instructional DVD; 1 extra lancet. Components manufactured in Malaysia, Singapore and USA.

Warning:

For in vitro diagnostic use. The Following Conditions May Affect the Accuracy of your A1 C result: hemoglobin variants (BbS, Hbsa- HbC), elevated to HbF anemia, recent significant blood loss, a recent blood transfusion, or high amounts of rheumatoid factor.

Easy to use - a helpful at-home test
The HbA1c test measures your glucose level as an average over 90 days. You can't hide from the results or miss peaks and valleys as you can with daily self-monitoring, so it is really a more accurate measure. Insurance will only pay for a lab test every 90 days, but I wanted to track my progress on a monthly basis, to ensure I was getting things under control. This test was easy to do, as long as you follow the directions (watching the online video helps.) I do not yet know how accurate it is - but my results were in sync with my expectations. I plan to re-test against my actual results after my next lab test. This test is marketed to doctors as an easy in-office test, so I'm hoping for good accuracy.

Last time ordering health supplies online
The meters that were shipped were short dated in fact one of them expired on feb 2013 and the other expired at the end of this month. I will be taking the one expired machine and exchange for one that at least is within date 6 months at my local Omak Walmart. To increase value please check dates on health care supplies before shipping out.

diabetic must-have

I use this test every other month - just to make sure my diabetes is under control - every three to six months I am tested by my Doctor and have found this test reliable and close to lab results - It is very easy to use - just follow the directions exactly - watch the provided DVD a couple of times and lay everything out before you start - I watch the dvd again as I do the test - very simple.. and makes me feel better knowing I am on target with my A1C. Price is reasonable.

An excellent product.

If you are comfortable reading and following instructions precisely, this product is terrific. It is so reasonably priced that I check my A1C monthly in order to stay on top of it. The results have been very close to the results I have gotten from the lab (no results can be expected to match up exactly when it comes to blood sugar). Also, Walmart only charges .97 for shipping, so it does not even pay for me to go out and shop for it!

Easy to use

I don't know how accurate this product is because I haven't checked it against the doctor's office. Two tests come in this kit. I did the first test and it showed 6.7. I had ordered this product through the mail. Perhaps in this heat, it hadn't come to complete room temperature before I used it (even though I waited awhile before performing the test). I performed the second test one week later and got 5.9. I don't know if that reflects on accuracy or not. It is very easy to use and the lancets are wonderful. I wish they sold these by themselves.

Works Perfectly And Is 100% Accurate

I have used this product for several years and it has worked flawlessly. I have also used it in conjunction with my lab work to gauge its accuracy, and its results are exactly the same as the lab's. It's been 90 days since my last blood test, so I am picking up another one today. I recommend this product very highly.

1. FROM ALL I HAVE READ ON BAYER'S SITE, THIS KIT CONTAINS 2 MONITOR THAT ARE DISPOSABLE. STILL A GREAT SAVINGS OVER LABS.
by ARNY
Helpful?
2. The monitor comes with each kit which comes with 2 test modules. I don't think you would want to keep the monitor for more then 30 days because the battery life may be an issue. Here is the instruction video I found on the Bayer A1C Now site and they have a toll free number to call if you have any questions.Hope that helps. http://www.bayerdiabetes.com/us/templates/flash/a1cnow_video_eng.html

1. Yes, as long as you keep the components sealed in their envelopes and stored in a cool, dry place. The unit is powered by batteries in each cartidge, so each time you use a new test cartridge, you're getting new batteries.
