A new study shows that if people with diabetes have been exposed to fruits all the time and there is still residue on their hands, the blood glucose readings they collect may not be accurate.
The study, conducted in Japan and published in the journal Diabetes Care, involved testing fasting healthy volunteers without diabetes.
Ten volunteers peeled oranges, grapes or kiwi fruit and took blood samples an hour later.
The study subjects who washed their hands with tap water after peeling the fruit were the same reading as the control subjects who did not touch any fruit.
If the volunteers do not wash their hands after processing the fruit, then the blood sugar level is very high, even if the fingertip is wiped with an alcohol swab before sampling.
The authors of this study say washing your hands with tap water after peeling the fruit, rather than using an alcohol swab, is very important for accurate monitoring of blood sugar levels using samples with fingertip stamps.
\"Unfortunately, after a careful examination of the manual of use of all glucose monitors in Japan, it was found that any hand washing manual was not recommended until glucose monitoring was performed using the blood at the fingertips, the authors of this study wrote, he was led by Gao Qiao of junteng University medical school.
\"When the hand is contaminated with sugar in the fruit held in the hand, we expect a similar result, while if the hand is not cleaned with water before blood collection, we will gradually bite.
