We've provided a list of available blood glucose testing monitors along with comments from consumers like you, for whom good blood sugar levels are also a daily priority. Hearing what other diabetics think of the performance and reliability of these diabetes testing meters may help you make a more informed decision before you buy.
"This meter worked very well, the display was large, and the process was easy. You put a drop of blood on the test strip and it tests in just under 1 min."
"The FIRST to consider those of us with poor vision."
"Tiny and cute too! This is the perfect accessory for testing on-the-go."
"They do not repeat test results audibly nor do they articulate the testing history which can be seen on the screen. If you miss the reading, you must repeat the test."
"You can add comments to your readings or flag them as before or after meals. It seems to be just the right combination of helpful features that help keep tighter control. I love it."
"This is the latest generation of the Freestyle meters. It offers some of the standard inclusions that you would expect in any modern meter for blood glucose testing today. 5 second tests, compatibility with alternate sites, and more."
"When I first found out these test strips were on a disc, I thought, "No way!" I was so used to the old way of loading strips. Ascensia really has made this easy."
"This is by far the easiest and one of the fastest blood sugar monitors I have seen. This unit does exactly what I need it to do and is fairly inexpensive (I even bought a second one to keep at work)."
"Easy to use, convenient."
"Fast, simple, and accurate."
"One of the most popular picks for newly diagnosed diabetics because it is easy to use, small enough that you can take it almost anywhere with you, and gives accurate readings."
"Small, case included, simple and easy to use and understand."
