Managing Diabetes This Coming Winter With HealthCare4All

Winter is approaching and for those living with diabetes, managing the condition can be a challenge. Fortunately, with some additional care and attention, diabetes can be effectively managed all winter long. Healthcare4all, providers of diabetes products, delivers advice on managing diabetes effectively in the winter.

Avoid catching colds and flu

According to  Diabetes.co.uk, due to the difficulties it can create with diabetes management, people with diabetes are generally at a greater risk in they catch flu. One potentially dangerous complication of flu can be the onset of pneumonia, which people with diabetes are more at risk from developing compared to those without diabetes.

It is therefore important that if you have diabetes you try and stave off colds and flu throughout the winter and all year round. Take a look at our blog about Winter Flu warnings! it will tell you all you need to know about the upcoming Flu we may face after Australia and New Zealand just went through it!

Like the UK, the past few winters have been fairly quiet but this year they had their worst flu season for a number of years.  Figures suggest that  there was nearly double the number of cases of flu than the average over the past five winters.

Reports have emerged of hospitals struggling, which is why NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens raised the alarm in a speech on Tuesday.

Last year, the NHS went through its worst winter in a generation. And already hospital bosses have warned this winter could be worse given long waiting times and bed shortages over the summer.

Mr Stevens is concerned flu could tip the health service over the edge as well as posing a threat to vulnerable groups, such as the elderly.

Washing your hands

Washing your hands often and using sanitisers can help ward off the germs associated with colds and flu. Getting plenty of rest and having the flu vaccine can help avoid people from getting the flu.

Keep warm

The Mayo Clinic advises that people with diabetes stay warm during the winter, and keep their feet protected and warm by wearing comfortable shoes and socks to help keep circulation problems at bay.

Eat well and exercise

Try and stay healthy throughout the winter by eating well. Have a well-balanced diet that comprises of plenty of fruit, vegetables, protein and grains.

Taking regular exercise can also help you stay fit during the winter and ward off potentially harmful illnesses.

Diabetes products

Diabetes monitoring with products such as a diabetes monitor and a diabetes meter is extremely important during the winter. Such products enable diabetics to test, monitor and control their blood sugar levels.

Healthcare4all has a range of diabetes monitoring products and equipment for sale.

The Accu-Chek Mobile system makes blood glucose monitoring easier & more convenient, and allows you to test without inserting or disposing of strips

  • 50 Strip Free tests on a continuous tape.
  • No single strips to handle or dispose of 6 lancets in a drum.
  • No single lancets to see or touchEasy lancing with 1-Click action to prime and release
  • Just 4 simple steps to perform a test
  • 2000 test memory plus 7, 14, 30 and 90 day averages
  • PC ready reports via a USB cable (not supplied)
  • No clinical waste
  • Designed for people with diabetes using insulin
  • Measures in mmol/L

The Accu-Chek costs £34.80

Medisana Meditouch-2 Glucose Diabetes Testing Monitor

The Medisana Meditouch-2 Glucose Diabetes Testing Monitor is another diabetes product Healthcare4all has available to purchase.

Based on an improved enzyme composition that reacts with glucose specifically, the Medisana Meditouch-2 Glucose Diabetes Testing Monitor helps to minimise the influence of other substances. The device’s test strips also comprise of an underfilling detection feature, which is designed to prevent a measurement being made if the blood sample provided is not sufficient.

Here are HealthCare4All’s top 4 tips to help alleviate SAD Symptoms

The shorter, darker days of Autumn and Winter make waking up a struggle for many of us. Summer has gone and Autumn is here which means its getting darker earlier and earlier. It’s hardly surprising that some of us suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Around 21% of the population experience a less intense form of SAD, which is often referred to as ‘winter blues’, while 8% of the population experience severe symptoms, which can prevent normal function without the right treatment.

SAD is caused by the lack of bright light. Daybreak light is the signal for the pineal gland to stop producing the sleep hormone melatonin but in winter the light level is insufficient to trigger this process.

As a result many people find their body clock moving forwards during the winter, making it harder to get up and get going in the mornings.

The symptoms associated with this seasonal disorder include a persistent low mood, being void of interest or pleasure in everyday activities, moodiness, feeling of guilt, worthlessness and despair, weight gain and craving carbohydrates, feeling reluctant to get out of bed in the morning and sleeping for longer, as well as feelings of lethargy and being tired during the day.

Whilst not fully understood, the causes of SAD are linked to a reduction in sunlight during winter, which can prevent a region of the brain known as the hypothalamus from working properly that has been linked to affecting the production of melatonin and serotonin hormones in the brain.

As the NHS advises if you are suffering from the symptoms associated with SAD you should consider seeing your GP. Your doctor will assess your mental health and ask questions related to your lifestyle, mood, sleeping patterns, eating habits, and other elements that may be affecting your mood.

The NHS lists several treatments for SAD, including making changes to lifestyle, such as exercising regularly, going for counselling, taking antidepressant medication, and light therapy.

Here are HealthCare4All’s top 4 tips to help alleviate SAD symptoms

1. SAD Lamps

The theory behind SAD lamps, is that the white light produced by the lamp “effectively replicates sunshine.” By replicating the sun’s rays, users of sad light therapy can find they have a positive response when using SAD light boxes.

When asked which SAD lamp I recommend I always suggest the Beurer TL30 if you are traveling or the ‘all singing and dancing’ Medisana LSC.

Lets take a closer look at both of these…

Beurer TL30 Ultra Portable Daylight SAD Sunlight Lamp £52.99 (inc VAT)

Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit SAD Light £149.99 (inc VAT)

Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit SAD Light
The Best SAD Lamp from HealthCare4All

The Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit SAD Light is a phototherapy unit with full-spectrum light. As well as having energy-saving bulbs, the Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit SAD Light is flicker free.

 

The best time to use SAD light therapy and SAD lamps like the Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit is between six in the morning and eight in the evening. Such units can be used for up to two hours a day. Treatment is typically most effective when the lamp is used for at least five consecutive days.

 

2. Exercise

The boost of endorphins you get when exercising could help you feel better by flooding your body with those feel-good chemicals.

What better reason to keep active this autumn and winter (preferably outdoors in natural light, rather than the gym)?

 

3. Eat more Healthily

We know how the foods we eat can affect our weight but did you know they can affect our mood too?

Make sure you are providing your body with a healthy, balanced diet, and both your weight and your mood could see the positive effects.

 

4. Try to avoid Stress

High stress levels will only heighten any depressive feelings you’re having.

Where possible, try to avoid stressful situations and take steps to manage the stress levels.

Review for the Beurer FB50

This arrived the next day and i have to admit i was skeptical when my other half got it for me. Usually foot spas are too soft to do anything for my feet, because i have plantar faciatis. I was proven wrong when taking it out and gave it a go. The fact that the water is warmed and kept warmed long enough ( i do like a long foot soak and i usually sit with the hot kettle next to me to top up my bowl) was beyond expectations. Constant temperature was amazing. Then you add the vibrations and the bubbles and i was in heaven. Well impressed! Good piece of kit for tired and achy feet.

 

 

As I mentioned earlier the Beurer FB50 is my absolute favourite, however I appreciate it is not cheap! So as an alternative our second best seller is the Medisasa FS885 Comfort spa. At £89.99 it is £16 cheaper and also an excellent product.

Medisana FS885 Comfort Foot Spa

 

3 in 1: bubble spa and vibration massage and red light
Water heating from 20°C to 48°C – user adjustable
Timer function for 20/30/40/50/60 minutes
Digital display for timer setting and water temperature
Automatic red light and heat function
Massage rollers in the middle of the foot spa to massage the inner surfaces of the feet
Removable massage rollers in the sole of the feet
Ergonomically-arranged air bubble nozzles
Good heat insulation through double-walled casing
Intensive reflexology
Convenient size- suitable up to shoe size 46
Review for The Medisana FS885 Foot Spa..
This foot spa is absolutely great, haven’t had a foot treatment like this ever. So relaxing, water stays warm, bubbles are terrific and vibration really feels lovely, AND, you can use it without water for a dry massage, both are a brilliant experience.

Do you suffer from Dry, Sore, itchy eyes that burn or feel like they have grit in them? If so, this weeks blog is for you!

HealthCare4All recommend the BEST products for Itchy, Swollen Dry Eyes
HealthCare4All recommend the BEST products for Itchy, Swollen Dry Eyes

 

This week I want to talk to you about a very common eye condition called Blepharitis. It can develop at any age and the main symptoms are that the edges of your eyelids become red and swollen. In most cases both eyes are affected, but often one eye is worse and generally its worse in the morning. Blepharitis isn’t contagious. Also, at this time of year there is so much pollen about. As we approach mid May, grass pollen season will start and if you get seasonal allergies you could be suffering with red, itchy swollen and dry eyes. The products below would be perfect for you!  I will write a post about seasonal allergies later this month with loads of advice and amazing products to give you some relief.

What are the Symptoms of Blepharitis?

INo automatic alt text available.t can develop at any age and symptoms include

  • crusting, swelling and redness of the eyelids
  • Dry eyes that have a gritty feeling and burning sensation
  • Light sensitivity and blurred vision
  • styes (an infection at the root of an eyelash) on the eyelid
  •  small ulcers on the eyelids
  • crusty eyelashes that stick together
  • uncomfortable to wear contact lenses

How to treat Blepharitis

Cleaning your eyelids to remove the crusts the eyelid margins and unblock the eyelid glands. To begin with you may need to clean your eyelids twice a day. You can do this by Using a warm compress – to make the oil produced by the glands around your eyes more runny.  Gently massaging your eyelids – to push the oils out of the glands. Cleaning your eyelids – to wipe away any excess oil and remove any crusts, bacteria, dust or grime that might have built up.
Unfortunately it is a long term condition that usually can not be cured so its a case of managing it. Even after the symptoms have gone it is a good idea to clean your eyelids at least a couple of times a week to reduce the chances of it recurring.  It is also suggested that daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and prevent permanent scarring of the eyelid margins.

More severe cases may require antibiotics that are either applied to the eye or eyelid directly, or taken as tablets.

So what products do HealthCare4All recommend for Blepharitis?

Artificial Tear Drops to help with dry eye such as Hycosan Original Preservative-Free Lubricating Eye Drops. Hycosan Original (0.1% Sodium Hyaluronate) is a sterile preservative free eye drop which is ideal for mild to moderate symptoms of Dry Eye. It can be used for 6 months after first opening. We like the Hycosan product because this unique device also dispenses a single calibrated drop with each click, and as such it offers incredible value for money when compared to more traditional Preservative Free options. 

  • Suitable for use with all contact lenses
  • No blurring of vision
  • Natural, soothing and well tolerated
  • Long lasting effect, due to high quality
  • Easy to use bottle
  • Suitable for use after eye surgery
  • The CoMod (Continous Mono Dose) system, keeps the contents sterile for 6 months from first opening and delivers a single equal sized drop (30µl) with each click.
  • For a 7.5ml bottle this equates to at least 225 drops per bottle or for a patient using it 3 times daily in both eyes, a 5+ week supply.
  • The Sodium Hyaluronate used in Hycosan is of an extremely high quality and this is evident by the viscosity (thickness) and the long lasting effects of the drop.
  • Uniquely, such high quality Sodium Hyaluronate, also allows this viscous, long lasting drop to cause no blurring of vision, which is a common problem with many viscous eye drops.
  • Hycosan is also unique, in that it is formulated using a citrate Buffer. The buffers acts to keep the pH of the solution neutral and maximise comfort in the eye. It also prevents the possible risk associated with Phosphate buffers used in some other

Blephasol Eyelid Hygiene Blepharitis Lotion.Blephasol-Eyelid-Hygiene-Blepharitis-Lotion-100ml-Sensitive-Eyelid-Daily-Use-New

Ocusoft Original Lid Scrub Blepharitis Wipes (x20) 

Contains 20 convenient Pre-Moistened Pads, which contain a gentle surfactant that removes oil, debris and dead skin cells from the eyelids. Ideal for routine daily eyelid hygiene and maintenance.

Without proper eyelid hygiene, conditions resulting in inflammation of the eyelids (such as blepharitis) and dry eyes may develop. Removing oil and debris from the eyelids with Ocusoft Lid Scrub, and, depending on the severity of the condition, possibly employing the use of antibiotics or antibacterial cleansers may help prevent or drastically reduce inflammation.

How to use Ocusoft Lid Scrub Original Pre-Moistened Pads
First, wash and clean hands. Then, fold the OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Pre-Moistened Pad over the index finger, close your eye and gently scrub the eyelid using side-to-side strokes for 30 seconds. Rinse thoroughly with water. Use the opposite side of the same pad and repeat procedure with other eyelid.

When to get medical advice

See your high-street optician (optometrist) if you have persistent symptoms of blepharitis that aren’t being controlled by simple eyelid hygiene measures.

They can examine you to check if the problem is caused by an underlying condition, or may refer you to an eye specialist.

Contact your optometrist or GP immediately if you have any severe symptoms. If this isn’t possible, visit your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department.

Are you searching for the best cold sore remedies? Try FDA approved Virulite from HealthCare4All

Virulite -The best treatment for COLD SORES from HealthCare4All
Virulite -The best treatment for COLD SORES from HealthCare4All

Are you searching for the best cold sore remedies? Well, I have done the research for you!

This week I want to talk about an amazing NHS Recommended, CE & FDA approved product we found for the treatment of cold sores. Its called the VIRULITE COLD SORE MACHINE and as soon as I listed it on amazon the 5 out of 5 reviews started rolling in!

What is it Virulite and how does it work?

 

 

  • Original Cold Sore machine made by Virulite
  • VCS1 Stops Cold Sores in their tracks when used at the first sign
  • Helps your skin to defend against the attack of the Herpes simplex virus
  • Uses Passive light invisible to the naked eye. Stimulating your body into reacting to the Cold Sore virus
  • Proven to work over and over. In some cases, the use of this machine prevents future attacks
  • Its developers claim that it  heals cold sores twice as quickly as using an antiviral cream.
  • Virulite is thought to increase the immune response to the virus

Why we like The Virulite Cold Sore Machine so much!

It is incredibly reliable and lasts for years. The only maintenance required is an occasional battery change.

At my pharmacy I see a lot of customers that are suffering with Cold sores and they get very frustrated with the current treatment options such as aciclovir (Zovirax) cream. The reason being that they are not very effective and in order to have any relief you have to catch the cold sore early. Unfortunately once you have the virus you have it for life as Cold Sores recur.

Virulite is different- it works by emitting invisible light which stimulates local immune response. It has NO harmful side effects and unlike the creams it works at any stage of sore.

Virulite has been approved by the NHS some years ago, and is also FDA approved which needed lots of evidence to show it really works.

The only downside about the machine is the cost. At £79.99 & FREE Delivery it is not cheap! However the Virulite is a very high quality product that is recommended by the NHS and proven to be Much more effective than creams for the treatment of cold sores. Also, we feel it is worth the money as the evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores.

 

 

How to use the Virulite Cold Sore Machine

The device should ideally be used as soon as the customer feels the “tingle” indicating that a cold sore is about to erupt. Simply hold the device against the affected area and press the activation button.

A visible light indicator lets you know that invisible infra-red light is being delivered to the area. After three minutes a “beep” lets you know that treatment is complete.

Customers are advised to repeat the treatment 12 hours later. If the cold sore progresses, the device should be used four times a day for two more days.

The Evidence

Results of a trial of 60 patients (published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in 2001)showed that a single application of Virulite CS healed cold sores in an average of 4.3 days, compared with 8.1 days for topical aciclovir applied five times a day.

A second trial, involving 32 patients (published in the same journal in 2006), showed that Virulite CS had a mean healing time of 6.3 days compared with 9.4 days for no treatment. The evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores and this is the subject of ongoing research.

The device is ISO13485 compliant (an international quality standard for medical devices) and has CE approval (showing that the device complies with relevant European health and safety legislation) & also FDA approval. No side effects have been reported.

The Reviews

The Testimonials and reviews for the Virulite are amazing, for example this one by Bobby Lall,

Every year I used to dread February as I knew I would get a cold sore. Obviously like most cold sore sufferers you try everything under the sun, excuse the pun. I stumbled across this product by the usual “cold sore cures” via google. So decided to give it a go; February has come and gone and I had 1 potential flare up which I immediately “attacked” with the Virulite, I thought that it was a coincidence\luck when it didn’t flare up at all. I was absolutely chuffed. I felt a tingling again (march 2010) and a tiny blister appeared – done the Virulite and within 1 day it’s gone. BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU SUFFER FROM COLD SORES – it’s the best thing I’ve used. Pain free, no mess easy to use. Brilliant Cold Sore Machine

The Best Pulse Oximeter from HealthCare4All

reliable Oxygen readings with the Heal Force Prince from Healthcare4all
What is the Best Pulse Oximeter?

If you or your child suffer from asthma, you will know how important it is to take reliable and accurate oxygen level readings.

This week i want to introduce you to the Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. One of the reasons we love it so much is that it will give you peace of mind without the need to visit your doctor.

We know there are cheaper models available, however for us, the most important thing to note when searching for Oximeters is Accuracy and Reliability! This is why if someone asks me at my pharmacy or at HealthCare4All for my opinion, these are the BEST finger pulse oximeter to buy.

 

What are Pulse Oximeters?

 Pulse oximeters help you monitor the amount of oxygen carried  around your body. Its completely painless and all you have to do is attach it to a fingertip for a few moments to get a reading.

An oxygen level of greater than 95% is generally considered to be a normal oxygen level and a level of 92% or less suggests low blood oxygen.

what is the best Pulse Oximeter
Heal Force 100i pulse oximeter from HealthCare4All

In addition to oxygen level it also tells you your pulse rate. For adults a normal pulse rate is 60-80 beats per minute, however your heart rate would be expected to increase with exercise and and oxygen saturation may slightly decrease (it should still remain at 90% or greater though).

I wanted to find one that is easy to use at home for at-home patient monitoring. For people with COPD, pulse oximetry is useful as a tool for patients to use at home to assist with their management under physician guidance. Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities. It can also assist your doctor in deciding if your COPD is getting worse.

For People with COPD, asthma and other lung diseases who want to be active, the quality of the oximeter they use is important. Accurate readings are very important – particularly when patients are active and their oxygen level may be dropping to provide accurate readings especially when you are active.

 

There are 2 Pulse oximeters I recommend. The first one is Heal Force Prince 100F High-Resolution Handheld Pulse Oximeter.  This is an amazing Pulse Oximeter but is on the pricey side at £189.00 (inc VAT), however if you want accuracy and dependability this is the one i would recommend.

The Prince 100F handheld pulse oximeter is a portable device for monitoring SpO2, pulse rate and pulse strength. It is robust, fast and reliable, so the device is suitable for use both at home and in a hospital environment.

The best Pulse Oximeter
The Heal Force 100f Pulse Oximeter from HealthCare4All

It is an upgraded model of the 100E, the main differences being as follows:

Why we love the Heal Force Prince

The reason we love the Heal force prince is because not only does it work straight out of the box, it can be used for both adults and children! There are cheaper models on the market, however, with Oximeters it is imperative the readings are accurate otherwise the product is pointless.  The Heal Force Princes readings are Very accurate and reliable and will give you peace of mind!

In order to use it for children or infants you simply attach a probe and then it will work for all ages! Allow me to introduce you to the Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port. Its very similar to the 100f however is £119.99 (inc VAT), so thats £70 CHEAPER and a fantastic bit of kit. what is the best Pulse Oximeter

It comes with preset alarm limits (these cannot be adjusted by user), and also When the external paediatric or infant sensors are connected, the finger clip sensor will be deactivated and the alarm limits change automatically! Please see below for the limits*

HealthCare4All are not the only ones that love it. Its fans include GP Surgeries and health clinics too as its so versitile, and its readings are accurate and reliable. All you need to do to use it is put your finger in it! It automatically switches on.

Our verified customer reviews have been amazing, here are just a couple of examples…

 

  • The Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port is in a class of its own. I was initially taken aback by the above average cost of this device. I have used several other much cheaper brands over the last several years with mostly disappointing results (inconsistent results, early breakdowns etc.). However having used this device most days for a few months I can testify to its reliability, excellent build quality and consistently accurate results. On every occasion it has held up..

 

  • Excellent product, we bought this to monitor our two year olds oxygen levels as he suffers with asthma and we were having to continually rush him to the doctors to be checked. At first we tried a cheaper monitor which was not accurate and hard to obtain a reading. We ordered this one and it has given an accurate reading every time (without either of the children’s probes being needed). Well worth the money. Would highly recommend. Fantastic product which will give us peace of mind.

 

 

 

To sum up…

  • The Prince 100I fingertip pulse oximeter is suitable for adult use using the integrated finger clip probe and infant or paediatric use via a wired probe (3 versions: infant bandage-style probes, paediatric clip sensors, and paediatric fingerstall probes available as optional accessories from stock).
  • The 100I oximeter is suitable for use in the home, medical institutions and care homes.
  • Its is ridiculously easy to use due to the lack of operational buttons.
  • Simply insert your finger into the oximeter and the unit powers on, takes a reading and then turns off 8 seconds after the finger is removed.
  • It is Light, small in size and easy to carry in a pouch and lanyard hanging cord which is included.
  • It has a Bright colour OLED screen which is very easy to see.
  • Automatic sensing finger tilt adjusts display direction
  • Audible and visible alarm function
  • It has an Automatic power on/off function – so no buttons to operate. Simply insert finger and unit turns on within 2 seconds
  • Power turns off if there is no signal for longer than 8 seconds

Rite Aid Breast Discs are Amazing for Sore, Cracked and Painful Nipples

Image may contain: outdoor

One of the most common questions I get asked at my pharmacy is what product is BEST & SAFE for instant relief of pain from cracked and sore nipples whilst breastfeeding!

I found an amazing product that is one of the BEST SELLING from Australia which is RECOMMENDED by maternity wards and midwives, called the RITE AID BREAST DISCS and Healthcare4all.co.uk have become the FIRST UK DISTRIBUTORS!

They are also ideal for us gentlemen that have sensitive nipples. I personally find that when I wear my football shirt or certain shirts they can really irritate my nipples. Solution is RITE AID!

So, what makes them so special?

Rite Aid Breast Discs

Of course they are safe and extremely easy to use, however they are unlike anything else in the market. They actually promote healing from underneath the pad, they are not just an absorbent or protective pad like existing products. As soon as they are applied there is INSTANT RELIEF of pain whilst simultaneously HEALING the cracked and sore nipple!

Another massive plus point is that they come with 12 PADS whereas other products like Medela only come with 4 pads for roughly the same price!

The feedback I have received is remarkable, just take a look at some of the amazing REVIEWS of course my wife swears by them!

RITE AID BREAST DISCS can save mothers who are about to stop breastfeeding due to pain and sores and as they come in packs of 12 rather than 4 will SAVE you money!

These breast discs are amazing, and have won the GOLD AWARD in Australia Mother & Baby Magazines ‘Most popular product for mum’.

‘SUPER LICE’, It’s Time To Meet Your Nemesis ‘The LiceTec V Comb’ From HealthCare4All!!

 If you know anyone suffering from Lice, Super Lice or Nits this post is for them!

#HealthCare4All are always searching the globe for the BEST products that are not going to break the bank! We have found an amazing gadget that will rid your children of LICE AND NITS and we have been ITCHING to tell you about it! Its called the LiceTec V Comb. #HealthCare4All are also the UK Distributors!

Why is it so amazing?

Unlike most products on the market today, the LiceTec Comb removes both Lice AND Nits. It is completely safe & extremely easy to use. It works by vacuum, so there is no risk of an electrical current to the user or the patient.

You can actually see the lice and nits getting sucked into the illuminated filter so you KNOW that you have caught them! This eliminates the guesswork you have from other products. It even works on Lice that are resistant to chemicals which is becoming a worldwide problem called SUPER LICE!

It can be used as many times as necessary which a major reason we love it so much. The alternative is using lotions that cost £10- £15 and can only be used once! The LiceTec V comb is only £36.95 from HealthCare4All!

What we also love about the LiceTec V-comb is that after it has sucked the lice and nits into the filter, you simply put the cap on and throw the filter away and you KNOW they have been safely disposed of!

As it is a registered medical device, it is marked with CE & FDA approved to give you peace of mind that you have a quality product!

We like to test our internationally sourced products and one thing that we suggest is that Technique on how to use the Comb is important. So please take a look at the instruction videos below.

Here are HealthCare4All’s Top 4 Peak Flow Meters

 

what is the best peak flow meter
HealthCare4All’s Top 4 Peak Flow Meters

 

As I lay in bed aching from head to toe with ‘The Flu‘ a few weeks ago, I thought with so many respiratory problems around at this time of year why not tell you about my favourite Peak Flow meters. HealthCare4all.co.uk has a great selection to choose from.

So what is Peak Flow?

Very simply it is a lung function test to measure how fast you can exhale. You take a full breath in, then blow out as fast as you can into a small, hand-held plastic tube called a peak flow meter. The measurement taken is called your peak flow.

When is it used?

A GP or asthma nurse might use a peak flow test to help see how open your airways are – they often use this test when you first tell them you’re experiencing symptoms that might be asthma. Your GP or asthma nurse should do a peak flow test at every annual asthma review as part of their routine checks.

This test is also useful for monitoring your asthma using a peak flow diary alongside a symptom diary and your asthma action plan. Take a look at www.asthma.org.uk for some more information.

Peak flow readings will vary depending on your age, your height and whether you’re a man or a woman. This test shows how your individual lung function changes.

Although your peak flow reading may be different in the morning or at night, it’s the pattern your scores make that’s important, rather than one score on its own. Most people have a best peak flow reading so you’ll be able to see when your reading goes up and down.

Keeping track of your peak flow whilst monitoring your symptoms can help you spot when your asthma is getting worse and when you need to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) or get medical help.
