From the article: Important Features of Blood Sugar Meters
There are many blood glucose meters on the market with various features. Most allow you to download your test results to a computer. Some offer a backlight display for testing in low-light areas. Others give you the ability to check for ketones or assess your blood pressure. A handful "speak" your test results audibly. Several require no coding or require a very small sample of blood. Which of these features is most important to you and why?
- In the end, all that matters is the cost of the strips. If you can't afford the strips, your meter is going to sit there gathering dust. Not everyone has insurance. The annual cost of strips is exorbitant.
