If you have a diabetic person in your family then this review will be quite useful for you. People suffering from diabetics must keep a check on their sugar level to prevent any mishaps. Sugar level of diabetics’ patient can be high or sometimes even low, so periodic checking is required as both conditions are dangerous.
You can either get your blood sugar level checked visiting any pathology lab or calling a lab technician at home. However, the process is bit expensive, so most people prefers testing their Sugar level at home.
The process is quite simple with modern days Glucometers available. So, here today I am reviewing one such equipment by the name of Dr. Morepen Gluco One Model number- BG 03. We have done the review of Dr. Morepen Gluco One on various parameters such as Ease of Usage, Price, and Brand Value.
**Disclaimer: We only review products as a user. We don't recommend anyone to use any product based on our review.
Dr. Morepen Gluco One comes in a plastic box covered by a paper box which contains the product information and branding elements. When you open the white color plastic box, you will notice the following content:
• GlucoOne BG-03 Blood Glucose Monitor.
• Lancing Device.
• 10 Lancets.
• Battery (CR-2032
• 25 Test Strips FREE.
Also there is an instruction manual inside the paper box which contains detailed information about the device. So, you can easily understand how a Glucometer works does once you read the manual.
When to Check Blood Sugar
If you are using this blood glucose checking device for the first time, you might have a question when to use’ it. So, let me answer your queries. There are two types of sugar testing you can do using this glucometer.
2. PPG (postprandial glucose)
Fasting is process of checking blood sugar level in the morning after you get up. You need not eat or drink anything upto 8 hours before the process. On the other hand PPG is the process of checking blood glucose after two hours of your meal. This is recommended also by the American Diabetes Association.
How to use Dr. Morepen Gluco One?
I have checked many Glucometers and I must say that Dr. Morepen Gluco One is quite easy to use, so you can check blood sugar of your or any of your family members easily using this device. The steps are as follows:
Step 1: You need to first open the lancing device and insert a lancet in it. You will notice that the device will have markings 1, 2, 3, 4.
Step 2: You need to rotate it to your desired number. Actually if your skin is thick you need to choose a higher number 3 or 4.
Step 3: Once you have chosen the number, just pull the back side of the lancing device holding it with another hand. This acts like a trigger.
Step 4: Now enter a test strip in your Glucose monitor
Step 5: Bring the lancing device close to your finger and press the button
Now as blood appears on your finger, touch the glucometer test strip on it.
In 3-5 seconds, you will notice your blood glucose reading will be displayed on the monitor as like the photo. You must understand what these blood sugar reading means. Normal blood sugar sugar levels will be less than 100 mg/dL after not eating (fasting) for at least eight hours.
After two hours of eating Sugar level will be around 140 mg/dL. So if the reading is more, you must understand that the person may have diabetics, so you need to consult a doctor.
Dr. Morepen is a brand of Morepen Laboratories, which has a rich history of 31 years. Head quartered in New Delhi, India, the company exports its products to USA, Canada, Russia and many other nations. Taking about brand value, I can say that this is a quite familiar brand when it comes to medical products.
Dr. Morepen Gluco One is quite affordable compared to many other similar products. However, there is not much price difference. You can expect other product 300-500 INR costly.
Where to Buy from
You can get Dr. Morepen Gluco One at any medical store easily in your area. However, I have purchased it from Amazon as I found it little cheap there. Apart from amazon, you can buy this blood glucose checker from 1mg, NetMeds etc. Just compare the price and go for the best option.
Finally coming to the conclusion and rating Dr. Morepen Gluco One, I must say that this products ranks high in terms of affordability and ease of usage. However, there should have been a battery charger or an electronic charging option. The only drawback I see. You need to replace the battery once it gets over. In my review of Dr. Morepen Gluco One, I rank it 4/5.
