Using a control solution to run a check on your meter and test strips are working can give you peace of mind.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggests using control solution:

  • Every time you open a new container of test strips
  • Occasionally as you use the container of test strips
  • If you drop the meter
  • Whenever you get unusual results (high or low)


Control Solution Tips

  • Discard expired solution, even if unopened.
  • Check the range of glucose values. Many systems require two vials of the solution: one checks values in the low range, the other in the high range. Often both vials are sold together.
  • Ask your doctor for a prescription. Many insurance plans (including Medicare Part B) include coverage for a control solution, but you’ll need a prescription.
