Re: [IPk] Re: Autolet Impression



Yup, We got hold of a softclix and use that with a one touch ultra. Then we
got a back up soft clix and Grace has rarely had to use freestyle and the
one that comes with the optima. Grace finds huge difference in lancets. Does
anyone know a way to "cover" the blade on the softclix after use?
We use the one touch ultra and the Ultra smart in school, as the readings
are easier on the ultrasmart. Grace can get mixed up with the 5's and 2's on
the smaller meter.
At diagnosis, we were assured that the optima clicker with the BD lancets
was the easiest. It was here I heard of other clickers and it was the
consensus that the softclix was gentler that made us get hold of one to try.
All the best
Mir
