Blood Glucose Meter Options

Dec 19, 2007
There is a big concern with diabetes testers everyday concerning the operation of their glucose meters. Patients don't like poking their fingers all the time when they want to test themselves for their blood sugars. Think about the difficulty of testing yourself many times a day. You would have to choose the lancet type and clean the area and then poke yourself.

Then you have to milk the finger to get a small sample of blood to add to the active testing strip to insert into the machine to gain an accurate and fast reading on the glucose monitor you have at home. You will eventually work your way around all ten fingers until they have no feelings left. These fingers will be numb and not have much sensation left in them. There are some newer non-invasive methods of testing blood sugar levels for diabetics. Imagine if you can never get another test strip again. You will not have to deal with the mess.

Your finger pain will be gone and you won't have to deal with another poke again. If your fingers are sore and fed up with the pokes then please make sure that you ask you doctor about the new methods of non-invasive techniques and methods of glucose testing. It is a great option. Not only because of the finger sticks is it a great option, but, also because of the visual issues. There are some great monitors for testing blood glucose levels which have large screens to read the numbers on to aid if your eyesight is aging as you age. Then even a digital readout on an ultra glucose unit can be a very difficult thing to do. But, it is essential to check your blood sugar often, and then record it for you and your physician.

There is another great option. You can get the talking unit. Yes, the unit actually will talk to you whatever number you got on the unit. You therefore will only have to take your reading by listening. This can make your life very easy. Even if you are hard of hearing you can have the unit save your past numbers and then bring the monitor to your physician and they will record it for you. Some names to remember are the one touch monitor for your glucose. There also is the Precision extra glucose meter. So even if you are a veteran of the diabetes testing crowd you will find that it is worth your time to stay on top of the latest testing units as research is being done every day to make sure that you have the fastest, most comfortable, and most accurate glucose testing unit available to you.

The things that may have worked for you in the past are being rapidly fixed. Just imagine the one touch glucose meter, which does not ask you to jab your finger and then milk a drop of blood out of it every day. You would not have anything sore. It would really make you want to test yourself often.
