Diabete-ezy Test-wipes are alcohol free and are designed to remove any food or dirt residue from the fingertip safely and effectively. Test wipes can also be used to remove blood after testing and can be used for site preparation for an insulin pump. The solution used in the test wipes is 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate.
The dispenser box is designed to fit easily into most testing cases and provides a convenient and simple way to clean your testing site prior and post BGL testing. Test-wipes are also great for cleaning insulin pump sites before inserting and once a site has been removed.
Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, an accurate reading of your blood glucose level (BGL) is vital. Washing your hands before testing seems like a simple solution to remove all impurities, such as fruit juice, food and dirt. However, in the rush of daily life, when you’re in the car or at a picnic, this isn’t always easy.
Starter Packs come complete with an easy to use dispenser box and 100 wipes.
The dispenser box is designed to fit easily into most testing cases and provides a convenient and simple way to ensure a reliable blood glucose test, no matter where you are.

One experience with not having clean fingers before testing…
It was Freddie’s Day Care day, I received a phone call at lunch time alerting me to the fact that his BGL was 21mml. I know that he was 6.2mml at morning tea and know that what he ate at Morning Tea would not raise his levels this much. I asked if he had washed his hands before testing and they said that he had. Usually we would give him an extra insulin injection to bring a level of 21mml down but I asked if they could use the Test-wipes I had in his meter case to wipe his finger and retest, his level came down to 13mml.
I often wonder what would have happened if I had not got them to retest and they had just given him the injection……we might have spent the night in hospital because Fred may have had a severe hypo. Also never trust a 3 year old when they say they have washed their hands!!
