About Accu Chek Aviva Test Strips
Manufactured by Swiss company Roche Diagnostics, Accu-chek is a popular brand of medical equipment used to measure blood sugar levels, specifically for people with type 1 and 2 diabetes. Accu-chek equipment is regarded by many users to be less painful than other leading devices.
For those who need to check their levels less often, or even those on a budget, a popular choice is the Accu-chek range of test strips. These do not require a prescription to be bought, and as such are often bought online in order to save money. However, there is a certain degree of caution when buying such products online.
For example, Accu-chek Aviva Test Strips come with a use by date, after which the results of the test will be invalid, rendering the product useless. The use by date varies from batch to batch, and means that products are often sold cheaper than those with dates that leave more time for them to be used. This may cause disappointment for customers who think they are getting a good deal, but might otherwise be unable to use that many test strips in such a short amount of time. To avoid disappointment, customers should check the listing or message the seller in order to find out the use by date.
The strips are sold in packs of 10 and 50, with the larger packs more suitable for families where diabetes is common, or where users may wish to also test family members to see what risk they have of developing diabetes.
