The Easy Touch GCU is a portable and extremely easy to use instant cholesterol monitoring system designed for both healthcare professionals and for self-testing. CE marked with guaranteed accuracy the Easytouch GCU is designed to assist healthcare professionals & patients in the management of the risk of heart disease, diabetes and gout, testing for glucose, total cholesterol and uric acid levels.
Checking your blood glucose level and cholesterol level regularly can help you identify whether your current lifestyle is putting your future health at risk. Diabetes UK estimates there are 7 million pre-diabetic people in the UK and over 1 million UNDIAGNOSED type 2 diabetics. Why is this bad? Unmanaged diabetes can lead to blindness, kidney failure and limb amputation. On average diabetics die 10 years prematurely. The only way you really know if you are at risk of becoming diabetic is to measure your blood glucose level. High total cholesterol in your blood is a risk factor associated with heart attacks, angina, strokes and much more. HEART UK estimates that 6 in every 10 of us have a raised cholesterol level. There are often no symptoms of high cholesterol and so the only way you know you have it is if you get it measured. Thankfully, prediabetes and high cholesterol can be reversed and help prevent future illness by adopting small lifestyle changes, such as eating healthier and exercising. This dual-function single monitor offers an easy way to keep a check of your glucose and total cholesterol levels. Simple to use, this small unit comes in its own protective carry case which can also house your lancing device and test strip containers. You can trust this device to be accurate time and time again. The test strips for this device are some of the cheapest available on the market providing you with an affordable way to keep a check on two of your Lifestyle Markers (Glucose and Total Cholesterol).
