Perfect blood glucose meter
I've had this meter for years and have had only one promble, my supplier stopped handeling. I tested this meter with two other doctor's and it was within two units. Accuracy is what I want, I don't need a meter to talk.
Adhesive on my minimed quick sets was defective. Luckily the 4 times they FELL OFF I was awake and aware of this. I called the 24 hour hotline and was offered a "tape kit" and 4 replacement quick sets and no real concern. Had I been asleep during any of the times the quick sets fell off I very well could ended up with ketoacidosis and in the hospital. I was asked why I think would be a good solution to this problem...... Well, perhaps if my life and health depends on an adhesive that may or may not work I should either change pump brands or go back to shots. A pump adding years to my life isn't any good if I don't make it to see those years due to the very same device.
I like this meter, but the readings are always at least 1.0 higher than I get at the clinic in near simultaneous fasting BG tests. So in short I am not confident about its accuracy.
I have several of the vaculance lancing devices that are getting old. I am having a hard time finding them anymore. They are excellent. No finger sticks! My son has been using these since he was 3 years old. He is now 16. Please bring this product back. If you know how can order them please let me know.
My Verio IQ meter is highly inaccurate. It reads 21 to 23% higher comparing to readings from my two Ultra 2 meters. Verio IQ meter is unsafe to use!
I got this meter for free with 150 test strips at Diabetes Supplies Plus. Comes with a port light to read in the dark.
This is a great product, but kind've pricey.
When I get a new meter, I always see how it stacks up to my previous meter. This one, while slower, is easy to use....BUT, the results almost never come close to any of my previous meters. Example: 2 of my older meters may read (give or take a couple of digits) 150. Contour TS............98 or 185. WAY different. I just don't trust it.
This is by far the best available kit you can buy. I love the glucose meter and test strip reliability to no end. There has not been a day that my blood glucose testing went wrong. This is completely opposite my experiences in the past. I used to run into bad results, error in results and flat out difficulty in the process of getting the sample to the meter. I highly recommend this meter to anyone who wants to stop wasting their time and get the right product on the first try. Believe me, I tried them all!
I find the glucose meter to be a pain compared to other newer meters on the market, like the Accu Chek Aviva. The test strips are great in every sense. I actually wish I could add them to my Aviva, then life would be great.
This is the best machine that I have used.just the right size to keep in your purse.
Not all lancets will fit in all lancing devices, but there are a few brands that are universal. Ask your pharmacist. If they don't carry them, a new lancing device is very inexpensive. Get one that uses the kind of lancets your pharmacy carries ..
You should NOT use the same meter. Most meters keep a running average of the readings, and mixing one persons reading with the other will cause the averages to be confused. While many people ignore these average readings, they are a very important number to know. The only thing better is knowing your last A1C readings (see your doctor . . .)Only the VERY EXPENSIVE meters (used in hospitals) can handle more than one person at a time.But if you look around just a bit, most doctors will GIVE AWAY the meter! You need to go to the right doctor and that would be an ENDOCRINOLOGIST. They can do this because the meter Company is going to make its money selling you test strips. Some meter companies(Roche, Bayer, etc) will give away meters by mail if you meet certain criteria.
I've done the lab test to meter test with several meters they're not close. They're in FDA tolerance but that's not good enough for tight control like I target (85). On top of that, the inaccuracy rate varies based on where your BS is. Low is xxx% inaccurate, normal (85-100) is another and > than that the less they care. You see they maintain only lows really matter so if you're 200 or 250 it doesn't matter. Of course if you're trying to do a correction calculation it does matter!
