Re: What Is the Best Glucose Meter on the Market
In Canada, at least, most meters are given out by the company for free when you purchase a box of test strips. I use the one touch ultra mini. It's VERY compact and relatively accurate, although it will test you a bit higher than you actually are (about .3) so I just subtract .3 from my readings.
I've probably used every brand of monitor out there -- I started with the glucometer elite, then went to the accuchek, then a one touch that was discontinued, then the one touch ultra smart then the accuchek compact, and finally, the one touch ultra mini. Out of all my monitors I've liked the one touch brand the best. I find their lancets hurt A LOT though, so I'm going to try the BD lancets which will fit into my lancet device I believe and have a finer needle.
if you're not into handling strips, you can get either the Dex from bayer or the accuchek compact. Both have drums, although the accuchek compact has more strips in their drum. You can also get lancet drums for their lancet devices so you don't have to handle so many lancets.
