To take a blood sugar reading please follow these steps:

  1. Open the Hello Heart app and connect the Glucometer, insert a test strip into the bottom of the Glucometer and wait until a test strip icon appears.
  2. Apply the end of the test strip to the blood drop vertically to collect the sample, (make sure that the little white box on the end of the test strip gets filled completely) the screen will count down and display a reading.
  3. Remove the test strip by sliding the button on the back of the Glucometer down. The reading will then be sent to the app via bluetooth.
  4. Discard the lancet by unscrewing the cap and placing the needle into the side of the lancet cap and removing it from the device.
