Frequently Asked Questions

Checking blood sugar

It's a small sample—just 0.6 microliter.

There are a few ways you can improve blood flow and make blood sugar checks easier:

  • Warm your fingers by washing with warm, soapy water, then rinse and dry completely.
  • Let your arm hang down at your side to increase blood flow to the fingertips.
  • Grasp finger just below the joint closest to the fingertip and "milk" or massage gently toward tip of finger, then squeeze for 3 seconds.
  • Use an Accu-Chek lancing device set to the right Comfort Dial setting for your skin type. Refer to your User's Guide for additional information.

You can count on quick, 5-second results.

Yes. You can use an Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device with any Accu-Chek meter. Drums of Accu-Chek FastClix lancets are available through your pharmacy.

The system automatically detects when enough blood has been applied to the strip and begins the test, even if some yellow is still visible. The only time you need to apply more blood is when the blood drop symbol continues to flash in the display.

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.

Getting started

Only the Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meter currently offers the wireless capability needed to transmit data directly to the Accu-Chek Connect app. However, you can enter data into the app manually or transfer data from other Accu-Chek meters into the Accu-Chek Connect online portal. That way, your data can be reviewed in helpful charts and graphs and shared with your healthcare team.

Once you download and open the free app, a start-up wizard will give you step-by-step instructions for pairing your meter and sharing data online.

For more information about how to get the most out of the wireless meter, smartphone app and online portal, watch videos on the Accu-Chek Connect system support page.

The Accu-Chek Connect app is available for Apple and Android devices. To receive information from the Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meter, the app must be installed on a compatible device. See if your device is compatible.

While the Accu-Chek Connect app is not designed specifically for larger screens, most will scale up automatically. On an iPad, you can view the app in 2X mode.

Test strips, coding and control tests

There's no need to code the meter, so you have fewer steps in testing.
