What do I get in this pack?

In summary you will receive:


 Blood Glucose Meter            10 x Blood Glucose Test Strips                     SD Check Strip

(measuring in mmol/L)


             10 Lancets                                Adaptable Lancing Device                    3V Battery Type CR2032


           Carrying Case                                  Full instructions and a helpful Self Test Diary

You also have the opportunity to order extra test strips from the 2nd drop down menu and extra lancets from the 3rd drop down menu. If you are happy with the 10 strips and 10 lancets that come with the monitor then just set the quantity of additional strips and lancets both to 0. All strips will have a minimum of 12 months to expiry and most of the time will have nearly 2 years to expiry.


Why do you need to know if I am a diabetic?

Diabetics do not have to pay VAT but unfortunately most pharmacies and retailers will require you to pay the full price including VAT and will leave you to fill out a long form to claim the VAT back. But if you buy from us, all you need to do is to confirm you are a diabetic from the drop down menu and you will be charged the price excluding VAT. You must select an option from the drop down menu to get the correct price.

*Please note that if you select "Yes I have diabetes" then you MUST provide us with your home address. This is because you are making a legal declaration which we will supply to HMRC so they need your home address details. If you want the goods delivered to an alternate address such as your work or to a storage facility and you select the non-VAT option, then you will need to send us a message with your home address before we can ship the goods*

But why would I need this Monitor if I am not diabetic?

Whilst the SD CodeFree Blood Glucose Monitoring System is designed to be used primarily by diabetics, it can also be used to give an accurate diagnosis to determine if you are diabetic.

What unit of measurement are the results displayed in?

This Monitor will display the results in mmol/L. This is the world standard for measuring blood glucose and is the one recognized in the UK. If you are based in a country that uses mg/dL as standard then we do have a listing for a Monitor that measures in mg/dL here :)

If you are unsure which measurement your country uses then you can check here.

Please also note that to convert from mmol/L to mg/dL is pretty straightforward - just multiply the mmol/L reading by 18.

Importance of Self-Monitoring your Blood Glucose Levels

Many people think that there is no point in self-testing because they believe that they know when their blood glucose levels are too high. Unfortunately this is often not true and unless your blood glucose level is very high, the way you feel is not always a good or accurate guide to what is happening.

The SD CodeFree Blood Glucose Monitoring System gives an accurate picture of your blood glucose level at the time of the test. It involves pricking your finger with the lancing device and putting a drop of blood on a testing strip. SD CodeFree Meter will read the result automatically. Using the Self-Test diary included in the pack to record your results will help you and your healthcare team work out whether your treatment needs to be adjusted.

Accuracy of the SD CodeFree Blood Glucose Meter

The SD CodeFree Meter is one of the most accurate and reliable blood glucose meters available. Zurich University Hospital recently (28/03/2012) published research on the accuracy and reliability of the top 20 blood glucose meters and they came up with the following results:

Basically, the 20 meters were all tested 10 times against a laboratory verified sample of 6.5mmol/l. The results above show that only 3 meters achieved a more accurate result (shown by the "bias" column) over the 10 tests but of these 3, only 1 meter achieved a more consistently accurate result (shown by the variance figures in the "VK%" column). In other words, of the 3 meters that had a more accurate result over the 10 tests, 2 of them had much greater variation of results (i.e. less consistency).

What these results essentially show is that the only meter that achieved more consistently accurate results than the SD Codefree Blood Glucose Meter was the Finetest system - a unit which, as far as we are aware, is not available to the general public and is only available to medical professionals.

These results also show that whilst the SD Codefree Meter will consistently give you an accurate result, some better known brands such as the Freestyle Lite and the Bayer Contour will consistently give you readings which are much lower than your true blood glucose level.

Benefits of the SD CodeFree System?

Not only is the SD CodeFree Meter the most consistently accurate meter available for home testing, it also has the following benefits:

  • Low priced replacement strips and lancets - 50 replacement strips for most blood glucose meters will costs you £10 or more but you can buy 50 replacement strips for the SD CodeFree Meter from our shop for just £7.99 including postage!! You can also buy 100 lancets for just £4.99 including P&P!! 
  • Quick and Easy to use - many meters will require you to enter a unique code every time you test but with the SD CodeFree Meter you just need to apply some blood to a test strip, insert it into the slot and the meter will automatically give you a reading in just 5 seconds!!
  • Convenient - the meter is small (47mm x 95mm x 17.5mm) and lightweight (47.5g with battery) and comes with a free carry case so that you can take your SD CodeFree Meter with you anywhere. The carry case is compact and lightweight but still has compartments for everything you need - Lancing Device, Lancets, Test Strips, Control Solution and Instructions.
  • Large Memory - the SD CodeFree Meter can store up to 500 results at a time.
  • Alternative Site Testing - the kit comes with an adaptable lancing device enabling you to obtain a blood sample from somewhere other than your fingertip eg. palm, forearm etc. This can help to give you a more accurate result if you have not eaten or taken any insulin for a few hours.
  • There is also an alarm setting to remind you to take your blood glucose reading.
  • Comes with a free 1 year warranty.
  • You can use your SD CodeFree Meter with SD Diabetes Management Software to store your records on your computer and help you to spot patterns for planning meals, exercise and medication. The Software is free for all customers and should be used under the supervision of a medical professional who will be able to use the program to help you better manage your diabetes. You will need to purchase the SD Cable to be able to connect to your computer - please contact us if you would like one.


Testing Procedure

Full detailed instructions are included with the meter which you should read through before using the meter but here is a quick guide:

  1. Insert a test strip face-up into the slot on the meter. The meter will turn on automatically.
  2. Use the lancet and lancing device to obtain a blood drop. You only need 0.9μL of blood:
  3. Touch and hold the drop of blood to the edge of the strip until the yellow window is completely filled with blood. The blood will automatically be drawn into the strip.
  4. The results will then be displayed in just 5 seconds.

Where can I buy extra strips and/or lancets from?

You can buy them at very low prices from our shop:

You can also buy extra strips by choosing +50, +100, +150, +200, +250 or +300 from the 2nd drop down menu and extra lancets by choosing +100, +200 or +300 from the 3rd drop down menu in this listing. 


What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a common life-long health condition where the amount of glucose in your blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly. This is because your pancreas does not produce any insulin, or not enough, to help glucose enter your body's cells - or the insulin that is produced does not work properly (known as insulin resistance). There are 2.8 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and an estimated 850,000 people who have the condition but do not know it.

More than three-quarters of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes mellitus. This used to be known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or maturity-onset diabetes mellitus. In type 2 diabetes, not enough insulin is produced or the insulin that is made by the body does not work properly. It tends to affect people as they get older and usually appears after the age of 40, but increasingly is seen in younger, overweight people. Depending on its severity, type 2 diabetes may be managed through diet and physical activity alone, oral medications or insulin injections, though a combination of these therapies are ideal for most cases.

The remainder have type 1 diabetes mellitus, which used to be known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. In type 1 diabetes, the body is unable to produce any insulin. It usually starts in childhood or young adulthood, and is treated with diet control and insulin injections.
