There are two ways you can set up your CONTOUR NEXT ONE meter: on the meter itself, or by using the CONTOUR DIABETES app. (Available on Play Store or App Store on Apple Products). For help with the initial setup from the meter itself, please see the User Guide included with the meter.
To set up your meter from the app, download the CONTOUR DIABETES app, open the app, tap ‘Get Started’, and follow the simple instructions. This will set up the meter and app at the same time.
The battery cover is located on the back of the meter. Press firmly on the battery cover and slide in the direction of the arrow. Please note: (Delaying more than5 minutes to replace batteries after taking the old ones out will require you to reset the date and time on the monitor. All settings and results from previous samplings will be saved.)
If the Contour Monitor displays an ‘E’ code, there are a variety of things that the monitor could be detecting.
E2 – indicates that there is not enough blood on the test strip.
E3 – the unit is sensing that the test strip has already been used. Be sure to use a clean test strip with each sampling.
E7 – indicates that the wrong kind of strip has been inserted or the strip port on the monitor has been contaminated.
E9 or E12 or E13 – The monitor is having a software issue. Most internal issues can be resolved by turning the monitor off, waiting fifteen seconds, and then turning it back on. Insert a new stip and retest. If the problem persists, contact customer service.
Monitoring blood sugar levels is one of the most important things a person with diabetes can do to help prolong their life. Knowing what activities influence glucose levels; exercise, different types of food, and even medicine, can provide the necessary information to create a reasonable treatment plan with your doctor.
According to the American Diabetes Association, the goal is to keep blood sugars less than 180mg/dL, 1-2 hours after the start of a meal, when most people’s glucose levels reach their peak. While blood sugar levels vary from person to person, your doctor can assist you to determine what is right for you.
Health complications can occur if blood sugars are not properly monitored. Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to consequences for health and aging, primarily attacking the efficiency of internal organs. If left untreated, there are increased risks for heart disease and organ failure eventually leading to death.
