Frequently Asked Questions

Meter care and batteries

Cleaning is simply removing dirt from the meter, while disinfecting refers to removing as much of the disease-causing microorganisms and other germs as possible.

Super Sani-Cloth® disposable, pop-up wipes are a convenient way to kill germs, and have been approved for cleaning and disinfecting the meter. You can buy them online from Amazon.com, Office Depot, Walmart and other retailers.

Be sure to clean the areas around slots and openings, while being careful not to get any moisture in them. You should also wipe down the entire meter surface, including the meter display.

Sharing information

You determine what types of information your healthcare team can access over the portal. We recommend letting your providers see everything you can see, so they can draw insights from all available information. Being able to review your blood glucose test results along with insulin, carb and other information can help provide context around patterns in your blood sugar.

Once your healthcare provider creates a free professional account, you can look up their office account name and send an invitation to connect online.

Getting started

The Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meter is available at Walgreens and other retailers, or through your healthcare professional.

You can download the free Accu-Chek Connect app from Google Play or the Apple App Store. And you can create an online account through the app or by going directly to the Accu-Chek Connect online portal. You'll also need to work with a member of your healthcare team to set up the insulin calculator within the app, to ensure that all the personal insulin settings are correct.

Test strips, coding and control tests

This meter uses Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test strips.

Using test strips that are expired can cause your results to be inaccurate. If your test strips have expired, throw them away and begin using a new vial of strips that are not expired. The expiration date is printed on every vial of test strips.

General questions

Roche goes above and beyond to deliver safe, accurate and dependable products.

  • For every lot of Accu-Chek test strips, containing millions of strips, one out of every 128 vials is tested for consistency of performance
  • Vials representative of the entire lot are tested a second time, with blood at a variety of glucose levels, to reflect a real-world environment
  • To ensure all strips we release to the market meet our high quality standards, investigation and additional testing are performed should a test strip show a reading outside specific ranges

1Coverage may vary based on your condition and other factors.

Your blood glucose can change quickly, especially after eating, taking medication or physical activity. If you test yourself in the morning, then go to your healthcare professional's office for a blood glucose test, your results will probably not match, even if you are fasting. This is typically not a problem with the meter, it just means that time has elapsed and your blood glucose has changed. If you want to compare your meter result to the laboratory result, you must be fasting. Take the meter to your healthcare professional's office and test yourself by fingerstick within 5 minutes of having blood drawn from your arm by a healthcare professional. Keep in mind that the laboratory uses different technology than the meter and that blood glucose meters for self-testing generally read somewhat lower than the laboratory result.

If you are fasting and you do a fingerstick test within 5 minutes of having your blood drawn, here are the general guidelines to compare the meter result to the laboratory result:

  • If your blood glucose is below 75 mg/dL, your results generally should fall within ±15 mg/dL of the laboratory result.
  • If your blood glucose is equal to or over 75 mg/dL, your results generally should fall within ±20% of the laboratory result.
