Zone E: Altered clinical action, could have dangerous consequences

Zone Analysis
Zone A: 98.5%
Zone B: 1.5%
Zone C: 0.0% (5 of 50,077 results)

Alternate Site Testing
You can choose fingertip or forearm testing with the OneTouch® Ultra™ 2, OneTouch® Ultra™, and OneTouch® UltraEasy™ Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems. Forearm testing may mean less pain because your arm has fewer nerve endings than your fingertips. With OneTouch® Ultra™ Blood Glucose Meters, results from the forearm may be different from fingertip results when blood glucose levels are changing rapidly (e.g., after a meal, after taking insulin, or during or after exercise). Only use fingertip during these times. Before you try testing on your forearm, read your owner's booklet and talk to your health care professional.
