PLEASE READ! EVERY DIABETIC MUST HAVE ONE!

Advantages: Quick, no clinical waste, stripless minitor...
Disadvantages: would be good to have a volume turn on/ off option.

Mobile Madness!

Review of Accu-Chek Mobile Blood Glucose System

Value for Money

Great Idea - shame about the implementation

Advantages: Comprehensive with nothing to dispose of when out - except insulin needles etc.
Disadvantages: Heavy, bulky and expensive. Significant limitations on cassette usage

A great touch from One Touch Ultra

Advantages: Only takes 5 seconds to produce results, can take blood sample from forearm as well as fingertips
Disadvantages: Still have to take blood samples!

The One Touch Ultra is the latest in a string of similar products from the boffins at Lifescan, part of Johnson & Johnson. Like most diabetics, I'm supposed to test my blood sugar upwards of 4 times a day. This is going to be even more important that ...
