Re: [IP] Lifescan meters

My son uses the OneTouch Ultra and we think it's a great meter.
Particularly the 5 second count down and the small sample size.  It also
gives the option of alternate site testing although Scott does not want to
do this.  And you can download the readings.  If I could change anything
(other than not having need for a meter at all) I would like to see a
backlight and the ability to test for ketones.
