[IP] At-Last A New Blood Glucose System

This afternoon Eve had a Dr appt. and the CDE came in with a new blood
glucose system called the AT-Last it's by Amira Medical. It is kind of hard
to describe but I will try. You put the lancet on the end of the meter and
push it in your forearm or leg. Then you pump it a couple of times to suck
the blood out, this was not painful (Eve has a low tolerance for pain). Then
you touch the test strip to the blood and the meter reads the test strip in
about 15 seconds. This is a very simple explanation. Eve thought it was ok
and cool but didn't think she would use it. She would have used it when she
was first dxed, but not now. Their web site is www.amiramed.com   My
understanding is that it will be on the market sometime in Jan.
