FreeStyle Lite test strips are one of the top selling diabetic test strips in the market. There are numerous reasons why. Some of the key factors are that Abbott has designed these test strips to only require 0.3 micro-liters of blood so that when testing your blood glucose you don't need to prick your finger so much that it starts to be painful or creates a callous. This is a big factor because the freestyle lite glucose test strips require the smallest amount of blood compared to any other test strip brand out there. Another reason why the freestyle lite diabetic test strips are so popular and most likely Americas top trusted brand is due to the reliability and accuracy that it provides.
If asked, most diabetics will tell you that out of a box of 50 test strips there are an average of 2-5 wasted strips with any brand of glucose test strips. There are many reasons that a test can result in an error but a few come across more often then others. One reason is due to not a large enough blood sample size being collected when drawing blood from the testing spot. These wasted strips result in a waste of money and with the prices of glucose test strips being so high each individual strip can cost a pretty penny.
These diabetic test strips give you the convenience of testing anywhere and much quicker then other test strips. No Coding Technology makes the Freestyle Lite Test Strips more accurate and less confusing. The worlds smallest sample size of just 0.3 mL is all that is needed to get accurate blood glucose readings. Freestyle Lite Test Strips support Alternate Site Testing, so you can test from your fingertip, forearm, palm, upper arm, thigh, or calf.
