Choosing a Meter:

It is well known that tight glucose control can markedly reduce the complications of diabetes. Home blood glucose monitoring has become a cornerstone of glucose control and overall diabetes management.

A variety of features should be considered when choosing a meter.

  • Meter size
  • Blood sample size
  • Time from sampling to results
  • Test strips can be packaged in vials or foil -- foil allows for carring individuals strips

The One Touch Ultra by LifeScan is the most popular meter in the world. You have probably seen their TV commercials with BB King. The Freestyle by Abbott has been gaining in popularity since it's release last year. Both are excellent choices.
