Frequently Asked Questions

Meter care and battery

Don’t worry—your information will be saved when you change the batteries.

To replace the batteries:

  • Open the battery door on the back of the meter by pushing the tab toward the door, and pull the door up and open.
  • Push the “hand” button to release the old batteries, then simply slide them out.
  • With both of the "+" signs facing up, slide the new batteries under the black tabs and the hand button.
  • Replace the battery door and snap it closed.

The Accu-Chek Guide system uses two readily available CR2032 lithium coin batteries.

General Questions

Accu-Chek Guide system uses Accu-Chek Guide test strips. The strips have a wide dosing area which requires a small blood sample. The strips are packed in a spill resistant vial that makes it easy to remove just one strip at a time. The Accu-Chek Guide meter is not compatible with other Accu-Chek test strips.
