Description of Glycemia strips
Glycemia strips assess the blood level of glucose. Hypoglycemiais a main indicator of metabolic disorders. Ketosis is characterized by an accumulation of ketone bodies in the blood and by hypoglycaemia. Ketone bodies are a type of acid produced when the body burns some of its own fat to get energy when the supply of sugar runs out. This physiological production at the beginning of lactation can be excessive and leads to metabolic disorders when the hypoglycemia is too important. The therapeutic goal is to restore blood sugar. Glycemia strips are for use with the Optium handheld Reader. Sold in packs of 50 or 100 strips.
