Bayer Contour Meter Reset Directions

Updated February 21, 2017

An Ascencia Contour is a blood glucose monitoring system manufactured by Bayer. Using a drop of blood, the unit is able to measure the user's blood glucose level. These units are designed to be used at home by individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes or hypoglycaemia. The Bayer Contour meter has the ability to store information on your last 480 test results. This can help you track your average blood sugar levels. If you wish to delete all of your past results, you can reset the meter. Once the meter is reset, any previously stored information cannot be recovered.
