Frequently Asked Questions

Meter care and batteries

The meter uses 3 standard AAA batteries, preferably alkaline. Rechargeable batteries can also be used.

No. All test results, diary information, and settings are saved in the meter memory when the batteries are replaced.

Clean and disinfect your meter once a week, or any time blood gets on the meter. You should also clean the meter before allowing anyone else to handle it.

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.

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.

The meter's full-color display provides instructions for dealing with most challenges you might come across. You can also refer to the Standard owner's booklet that came with your meter.

General questions

Because your meter and lab tests don't measure the same thing, these numbers are likely to vary. Lab tests generally test plasma, but a meter uses whole blood. As a result, even if you take both tests at the exact same time, your meter is likely to show a lower number than the lab results. This is perfectly acceptable, and your healthcare professional will already be factoring this in.

You can also set reminders for appointments on specific days.

How to use the Accu-Chek Aviva Combo blood glucose meter

Owner's Booklet

Your Training Handbook gives you step-by-step details about all the features of this blood glucose meter.
 

Checking blood glucose

The Accu-Chek Aviva Combo blood glucose meter is designed to give you confidence in the accuracy of your blood sugar results. Its easy, quick-fill test strip fills quickly with only a tiny, 0.6 microliter drop.

Use the lancing device to prick the side of a fingertip. Gently squeeze the fingertip to produce a small drop of blood.

Touch the drop of blood to the tip of the test strip—do not apply to top of the strip. A flashing hourglass lets you know when enough blood has been applied. Your result will appear in the display.
