When my Medical Doctor received the above results he called me into the office immediately, gave me personal education and teaching materials, this glucose monitoring kit saying "The Medical Director of the Diabetes Center really thinks this is the best one, especially since it automatically keeps a log that you can add comments, and the glucose readings can be downloaded." Even though I have been an Registered Nurse since 1981 my Surgical ICU background did not include finger sticks and glucose monitors. (We used morning/evening draws by lab techs and those results).
The box includes the glucose monitor, lancing device, 10 sterile lancets, and 10 testing strips that all fit in a black, well made kit. It is compact and lightweight and will easily fit into a purse. A previous reviewer noted purchasing a second kit for work while leaving one at home, I think that is good planning.
Since it was recommended by the Diabetic Center Medical Director it SHOULD have accurate results. After reading some reviewers that have varying results, I will double check with him and ask for an explanation.
The testing lancets are extremely tiny and do not leave my fingers sore. A tiny drop of blood is all that is necessary and there is a great wicking action by the testing strip.Read more ›
The company, LifeScan/OneTouch/Ultra2, is really Johnson & Johnson, quotes the FDA regulations of +/- 20%. Maybe change the regulations?
In this case, haste makes waste.
Also the meter uses 1 microliter of blood. The meters at Walmart, ReliOn use almost half, 0.6 microliters of blood. The test strips of the ReliOn are 1/2 the price of OneTouch. So I will buy a $9 ReliOn meter and check it against the LifeScan.
I might change my decisions if I had to test repeatedly. I was using the meter to check as I lowered my glucose readings with diet and exercise, not because I was diabetic. When the meter read 86 mg/dL, then the lab results were 72 mg/dL. This was the number I was aiming for, in the low 70's. If I used the Ultra2 and it read 72, then the real number might have been 60 which is too low. So I need accuracy for my purposes much more than I need speed.
I still cannot believe that the regulations allow +/- 20% for these meters. Am I alone in this dismay?
What I loved most about the Ultra 2 is that it uses the same test strips for One Touch Ultra, and the monitor allows you to add in comments describing the reading; one group of descriptions for pre or post meal, and another for how you're feeling/why. Another boon is this monitor will give you averages based on the info you input.
As well, it turns out my readings were consistent on both monitors. This says to me the One Touch Ultra brand is sturdy and reliable. The old one was about a year old, and I dropped it a lot.
The main reason I switched was for the backlight. Silly, I know, but it makes such a difference. Also, you can add comments to your readings or flag them as before or after meals. I like the ability to check my averages based on all results, before meal results, or after meal results. The up/down buttons are helpful, too. No more scrolling all the way through if you accidentally skip over your number when coding the meter.
The OneTouch Ultra 2 isn't hard to use or full of extras that are useless. It seems to be just the right combination of helpful features that help keep tighter control.
