How to use Aina Mini Glucometer to instantly read your Blood Glucose Level
If you are diagnosed with any form of diabetes, be it Type 1, Type 2, Gestational, Diabetes Mellitus or Prediabetes, one of the most valuable tools you can have is a blood sugar reader, or a glucometer. Blood glucose monitoring is an important part of your diabetes care as it provides you with instant feedback and lets you know immediately what your blood sugar is. Apart from reading high or low blood sugar levels, it provides you with information on how your body is responding to certain foods, exercise, and medicine and gives your doctor an accurate picture of how your treatment is working.
With the Aini Mini Glucometer, we go the extra mile with portability, easy operation, and convenience. The Aina Mini Blood Glucose Monitor can be connected to the 3.5mm audio jack of your smartphone. It requires less than 1 uL of the blood sample for testing, shows results in under 10 seconds and has strong data managing capacity that includes cloud data storage and remote data sharing. All these advantages make it an excellent blood glucose monitoring tool. The results you get with Aina Mini can help you and your healthcare professionals to monitor and adjust your treatment plan to your best benefit.

How to use the Aina Mini Glucometer
Step 1: Launch the Habits App on your smartphone. Plug the Aina Mini Device into the audio jack of your smartphone. The app advances to the next screen when the device is connected.
Step 2: Take out one test strip and insert it into Aina Mini Device by following the
arrow’s direction. The app advances to the next screen when the strip is inserted correctly.
Step 3: Set up the lancing device by gently pulling the sliding barrel of the lancing device. Place the device on your fingertip press the trigger to get a drop of blood from your fingertip. Some people find that getting a blood sample from the side of their fingertip, rather than the top, makes it easier to apply the blood to the test strip.
Step 4: Touch and hold the drop of blood to the narrow channel at the top edge of the test strip. Make sure that the channel in the strip is completely full. If your sample doesn’t fill the channel, add more blood to that strip within 5 seconds. Wait until the app begins to countdown.
Step 5: Your meter will count down and display the result of your blood glucose level within 10 seconds.
To reduce the chance of infection:
- Never share a lancet or lancing device with anyone else.
- Always use a new, sterilized lancet. Lancets are for single use only.
- Keep your lancing device clean.
