Re: [IP] Blood Sugar Meters/Tracking Software: Latest/Greatest
You're right the Gluco pilot is all manually entered, that's what I was
saying that we should get the palm people to make a device to check our
blood and log it in. <G>-automatically of course!
The Accu-Check Instant =Roche Labs....same folks that make the Advantge,
I use the WinGlucoFacts exclusively and I too use the H-TRON pump. Yes,
it takes a bit of time, to tend to this condition, but heck, dialysis
requires 8hrs a day 3x/weekly. Are we really That short of time to begrudge
ourselves a few moments a day to do our thing?
I admit I'm probably not as VIP as you to be so busy all day, I'm just an
average person who will say "no" a few times to folks if it means
interfering in my current projects.
The GlucoWatch is the thing that comes to mind re; instant without
blood...It's not available yet, but soon will be, the backing things where
the Glucose is read are $4-5.00 each, they require 3 hours of calibration,
to your body, and so far but soon, no downloading feature. The makers of
the gluco watch told our pumper's group that you'd still have to use a
conventional meter for tests and calibrations.
