- The iHealth glucometer is not designed to be used on newborns.
- The iHealth glucometer is not designed for analysing arterial blood, serum or plasma.
- The iHealth glucometer must be used exclusively with iHealth test strips (EGS-2003).
- The iHealth glucometer can be used at a maximum altitude of 3276 meters.
- At levels higher than normal or at therapeutic levels, the following substances can interfere significantly (affecting the result by more than 10%), leading to an incorrect result:
- Ascorbic acid
- Uric acid
- L-dopa, etc.
When present at normal concentrations, these substances do not affect test results. However, they may affect test results if they are present at high concentrations. Do not use samples presenting a haemolysis, jaundice or hyperlipidemia.
- Patients being treated with oxygen therapy are likely to obtain incorrectly low readings.
- Do not use for patients presenting a hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar syndrome, with or without ketosis.
- Do not use for seriously ill patients.
- Do not use for patients who are dehydrated, hypertensive, hypotensive or in shock.
- An abnormally low or high red blood cell count (haematocrit) is likely to lead to incorrect results. If you do not know your haematocrit level, please contact your doctor.
- We recommend that the iHealth glucometer is regularly compared with another glucometer under meticulous oversight and care by a health professional.
