When you have diabetes, one of the best tools to help you manage your condition is an accurate blood glucose meter.
Here is a list of the ones I tried myself and why I liked them so much
One of the most accurate blood glucose meters I ever used. Almost in sync with the professional device used by my doctors, easy to use and keep track of your results.
The OneTouch Ultra2 Meter needs just a speck of blood. You can test on your finger, forearm, or palm; and takes only 5 seconds to give you the results.
The meter comes with a lancing device, ten lances and ten standard One Touch testing strips.
With Care Touch’s high tech monitor it’s easy to keep track of your glucose levels.
This system has a 14-Day Averaging, Pre/Post Meal Flagging (most readers do not offer this option, so you have to manually calculate it). You can also test in alternate sites, and need only a small blood sample.
Includes an easy to understand instructions book for first timers.
What I most like about this meter is the fact that I can choose one of the 4 testing models before checking my blood: control solution test, before meal, after meal and random time.
The lancing device has 6 adjustable depth options to minimally wound and reduce pain. The glucose monitor takes 7s and 0.7µl blood to read, a little bit more than I’d like, but have a large display.
This meter gets into measure status automatically once inserting the blood sugar test strips, and its reading are very accurate.
At an affordable price, CareSens N competes with all blood glucose monitors available in the market.
As one of the most affordable glucose test strips, CareSens N strips provides accurate and precise results of your glucose level. Micro inlet point effortlessly accepts your sample of tiny 0.5 micro-liter.
This meter includes a SmartLog Diabetes Management Services compatible with Windows OS and Mac OS.
Just connect your meter to your computer, and instantly transfer all glucose data. You can also personalize your profile, dietary information, and other various lifestyle events to create and view your most accurate glycemic patterns and share your information with your doctor.
