Using the multiCare-in Triglycerides strips it is possible to quickly check triglycerides level in the blood.
The level of triglycerides in the blood is influenced from fat feeding or from alterations of the metabolism of lipids but also from diabetes mellitus, nephrotic syndromes, pancreas problems, acute alcoholism.
It is important to inform the family physician to find a suitable therapy or to check-up on an existing therapy.
Perform the test when you have not had anything to eat or drink (except water) for at least 12 hours.
How to perform triglyceride test
1. Insert the data-chip
It is necessary to insert the data-chip contained in the strips box in order to automatically download all required information to perform the test.
2. Check the number
On the display will appear the data-chip number that should correspond to the one printed in the strip vial label.

Sample to be used: Fresh capillary whole blood
Range of Measurement: 50-500 mg/dl (3,3-10,3 mmol/l)
Averange time for reading: About 30 seconds
Storage conditions: 5-30 °C
Table of results
Below 50 mg/dL (0.5 mmol/L) = LO*
Between 50 mg/dL (0.5 mmol/L) and 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) = the numerical result
Above 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) = HI**
.*Repeat the test.
**Such results mean that the Triglycerides concentration in the sample is very elevated and it indicates a serious risk. CONTACT A PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY.
Less than 150 mg/dl (1.7mmol/L) = Normal
Borderline High= 150-199 mg/dL (1.7-2.2 mmol/L)
High= 200-499 mg/dL (2.3-5.6 mmol/L)
Very High= 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) or above
