SV: [IPk] Scar tissue



Diana

I'm a Scandinavian, and put my sets in my stomac :-)

Has the FreeStyle meeter from Disetronic been launched in the UK? It wil be launched in Norway next year, but I've got one on trial. I like it very much, since it takes allmost no blood to perform a test. That means you can take blood from your arms.

The SoftSense is another alternative. I find it nearly painless in use.
