[IP] when did blood testing meters come out?

Janet asked .....

"When did home bg meters first become available? How about human insulin?"

In Australia they were first available in 1979 and I had to have a doctors letter stating the necessity of using the cumbersome machine.  It was not battery operated, needed a warm up of 30 minutes before using and calibration liquids each time it was used.  Those were the days ???!!!
