Intended use Test strips for the quantitative determination of total cholesterol in capillary whole blood. For use by health care professionals and for home use by people with diabetes for cholesterol screening. For use with Accutrend Plus and Accu-Chek InstantPlus meters. Before using these test strips read this package insert and the User's Manual carefully. FOR IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC USE Patient Information Introduction Cholesterol is a substance which is naturally produced by the liver and is found in many foods. When the blood cholesterol level in the body reaches a certain point, it can build up in the arteries. This may lead to an increased risk of heart disease or stroke. The Accutrend Cholesterol test is an easy-to-use test for home use that lets you measure the level of total cholesterol in your blood in minutes. Total cholesterol testing helps detect those persons that may be at risk for coronary heart disease. The Accutrend Cholesterol test strip, used as directed with an Accutrend Plus or Accu-Chek InstantPlus meter, will accurately measure your total cholesterol level. The strip changes color as it reacts to total cholesterol in a drop of blood and the meter measures this color change. Your total blood cholesterol is then displayed on the display screen. Product Updates This section of your package insert may contain new information that has not yet been included in the Accutrend Plus or Accu-Chek InstantPlus User's Manuals. Refer to this section each time you get a new container of test strips for the latest revisions or updates. Strip Storage and Handling ? Tightly re-cap the container immediately after removing a test strip. Exposure to light and moisture may discolor the test strips which may lead to an incorrect result. ? Do not cut or alter the test strips in any way. This will lead to an incorrect test result or an error code. ? Store strips at 36 øF (2 øC) to 86 øF (30 øC). Do not freeze. Tips for Getting a Good Drop of Blood Accutrend Plus and Accu-Chek InstantPlus meters and strips require a hanging drop of blood. If you are new to self testing, or have had trouble getting enough blood in the past, you may want to review the following steps before you proceed with testing. ? Wash hands in warm, soapy water; rinse and dry completely. Warming the fingers can help increase blood flow. If you use an alcohol wipe to clean your finger, make sure the finger is completely dry before continuing. ? Let your arm hang down at your side briefly to allow blood to flow to fingertips. ? Grasp finger near area to be pricked and squeeze for three seconds. ? Keeping hand down, prick side of fingertip, and squeeze gently until you get a hanging drop of blood. For lancing the finger Roche Diagnostics recommends Accu-Chek Softclix, Accu-Chek Safe-T-Pro and Accu-Chek Safe-T-Pro Plus devices. When testing cholesterol, wipe away the first drop of blood with a cotton ball or tissue. Apply the second drop of blood to the test strip. Be careful not to squeeze finger too hard. What Does My Result Mean? The National Cholesterol Education Program recommends that repeated measurements of cholesterol be done to find out your baseline (beginning) value. At least 2 or 3 tests should be performed over a period of several weeks. The average of these values will determine your baseline cholesterol level. See your physician for more information on your baseline value.1 The total cholesterol results and suggested actions below are for adults 20 years and older.1 Always consult your physician before making any changes in your medication or diet based on your total blood cholesterol result. Desirable Total Blood Cholesterol If your test result is below 200 mg/dL, your total cholesterol level is ?desirable.? Record your result and discuss with your physician how often you should retest your total cholesterol. Your level may change over time, especially if you change your eating or exercise habits. If your result is between 190 and 199 mg/dL, your cholesterol level is close to the next risk group. ALL individuals with total blood cholesterol between 190 and 199 mg/dL, as reported by Accutrend Cholesterol test strips and meters, should talk to their doctor and confirm their blood cholesterol level in a clinical laboratory. Borderline-High Total Blood Cholesterol If your test result is 200 to 239 mg/dL, your total cholesterol level is ?borderline-high?, which means you are at increased risk for developing coronary heart disease, compared to those with lower levels. You may not need intensive medical attention, but you should consult with your physician. High Total Blood Cholesterol If your test result is 240 mg/dL or above, you are in the ?high risk? category for developing heart disease. One test is not enough to confirm high blood cholesterol. At least 2 or 3 tests should be performed over a period of several weeks. The average of these values will determine your total blood cholesterol level. You should see your physician for more information or a complete medical check-up. Total cholesterol is affected by your diet and by your body's metabolism. However, your cholesterol level is only one factor related to heart disease. There are other factors like high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, obesity, and inactivity (lack of exercise) that are called ?risk factors? because they can also lead to heart disease.2 If you have any questions about your total blood cholesterol result or the risk factors, consult with your physician. Unusual Test Results If your total blood cholesterol value seems unusually high or low there may be a problem with your test procedure, test strip or meter. The following can cause unusually high or low results: ? Test strip was not stored in container with cap tightly sealed. ? Test strip was used after expiration date. ? Test strip was stored in extreme temperatures. ? Proper maintenance and handling procedures for the Accutrend Plus or Accu-Chek InstantPlus meter have not been followed. ? The blood drop was too small. your health care professional. Health Care Professionals Read the Patient Information and the Health Care Professional Information sections of this package insert. Strip Storage and Handling Refer to the Patient Information section of this insert. Limitations of the Procedure Accutrend Cholesterol test strips give dependable test results if the following limitations are understood: 1. System measurement range is 150-300 mg/dL. 2. Only fresh capillary blood is recommended for accuracy determinations. Do not use venous or arterial blood. 3. Recent illness, pregnancy, birth control pills and other conditions may change your total cholesterol level. If you are concerned or have any questions, talk with your doctor. 4. Hematocrit values between 30-55 % do not significantly affect test results. 5. This system has not been proven for use with neonates. 6. In vitro bilirubin (unconjugated) up to 10 mg/dL, uric acid up to 9.0 mg/dL and triglycerides up to 400 mg/dL showed no interference. 7. In situations of decreased peripheral blood flow, fingerstick blood testing may not be appropriate as it may not reflect the true.
