Re: [IP] blood checkers
I have been using the Accu-Chek Complete meter for a few months now. I
really like it. I'm still waiting for the software to come out,
though. It is the only meter that is really made to be compatible with
keeping records from using a pump. It lets you enter your boluses in
0.1, 0.5 or 1.0 unit increments. It also lets you keep a record of your
basal profile(s). It can also be set up to record things like tubing
changes, etc. I particularly like the on-screen display of the BG
The only thing I dislike about it is that it uses up batteries real fast
-- especially if you use the backlight feature. Unfortunately it is
very difficult to see the screen most of the time without the
backlight. It uses 2 "AAA" alkaline batteries which are easy to find
and don't cost very much. I don't see this as enough of a drawback to
quit using the meter.
