Freestyle Lite strips are blood glucose test strips used with the Freestyle Lite Blood Glucose Monitoring System.

These test strips are designed for fast and easy testing, and they use coulometry technology to calculate the glucose signal from the blood sample.

When a blood drop touches the ZipWik Tab on the Freestyle Lite test strip, it breaks the blood surface and wicks the blood into the strip instantly.

The generic name for Freestyle Lite test strips is “blood sugar diagnostic.” Note that the generic name is not a specific drug or active ingredient, but rather a category that describes the purpose of the product. The manufacturer of the Freestyle Lite test strips is Abbott Diabetes Care.

Use and Dosage

Here are some key points regarding the use and dosage of FreeStyle Lite test strips:

  • Compatibility: FreeStyle Lite test strips are compatible only with the FreeStyle Lite blood glucose monitoring system. Use only the designated test strips with the corresponding meter to ensure accurate results.
  • Usage: Before using the test strips, thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water, or use an alcohol swab to clean the area where you plan to test your blood sugar. Insert a test strip into the meter, prick your finger with a lancet, and apply a small drop of blood to the test strip.
