Re: [IP] Testing Meter's



I find the one touch needs so much of a sample size, you're milking so much
or stabbing so deeply for the smaple of course you're gonna hurt...
Check out three here....
The Freestyle meter (Uses forarm)

Glucometer DEX-uses fingertips and has a vacuulance for palm....

Lifescan's FasTake meter with the fasDraw Strips.....

Some folks use their forarm with the FasTake and Glumeter DEX. The Freestyle
was made for the forarm.

There is another meter called the AtLast, from Abbott, I think....It's a bit
bit ugly, black and you have to use the forarm, keep the meter on it and
push up and down on it a few times to bring the blood to the surface.
Freestayle doesn't require that....Looks nicer too.
