RE: [IPk] soft-sense

Hi Zoe,

I think it's probably OK for adults, but we get a lot of "not enough
blood" errors with Sam's smaller arms.  It seems to be OK for adults.
However, it is expensive.

A far better choice would be the One Touch Ultra, which costs 15 pounds
or less and can be used on arms, but the arm testing isn't brilliant.
However, it's cheap enough to try even if you don't find it good enough.
The strips and lancets are available on prescription.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone use the soft-sense to test blood glucose? Is it worth all
money (going through a particularly painful time with my fingers).
