The Omron HGM-122 Glucometer is a self-use device that measures Diabetes and Blood Sugar levels for patients at home. The device comes with a free vial of 10 strips.
Extra strips need to be purchased separately, of course. High blood sugar levels are very dangerous because they may result in serious fatalities like Blindness, Cataract, and Amputation.
With the HGM-112, diabetes patients can regularly check their blood sugar levels and take the appropriate steps to keep it in check by improving diet and by taking the advice of a professional medical practitioner.
Keeping in mind the needs of patients, the HGM-112 is designed for fast and precise measurement of Blood Sugar levels.
The device requires no complicated initial setup or coding. The User Interface is simple and easy to use for everybody.
Readings are incredibly fast, in 5 seconds you will get accurate data displayed on the screen.
The device is lightweight, has a clear LCD display and it auto-codes. It displays an error/warning if a used, damaged, or expired strip is used by accident.
The blood sample best suited for readings should be Capillary Whole Blood Samples drawn from the Fingertips or the Palm of your hand. The LCD screen calibrates your glucose levels into digital mode.
The time during which the blood sample is taken is displayed on the screen. A tiny 0.1 microliter blood droplet is enough for a reading. The readings are tagged with markings that indicate pre-meal or post-meal readings.
The body of the device is made of toughened plastic and it has a smooth-edged finish. There are slots for the glucometer, the lancing device, AST Cap, carrying case, log book and the operation manual.
The free strip vial must be completely used before 90 days from the date of opening. The total weight of the device is around 25.5 g along with the batteries, which is incredibly light to use.
It guarantees a pain-free or less-pain blood sugar reading experience.
Omron HGM-112 Glucometer Review :
- Simple and easy user interface.
- Inexpensive product
- Free strips come with package.
- Provides regular blood pressure reading at home.
- Readings may differ from that obtained at the Doctor’s. Not 100% accurate.
- Device is not long-lasting and readings may fluctuate with prolonged use.
- Wrong readings may aggravate the user.
While the negatives may be a little on the higher side, it wouldn’t be fair to say that this is a completely worthless product. The low price seems to compromise for durability and reliability. This is a useful device to be used at home but make sure you take readings and recommendations from your Doctor regularly.
