We have talked about so many things. Let’s look into a Top 5 Diabetic Meters For 2019. What do you think the top #5 meters are that you can get for testing your blood sugar? I’m really not sure how many there are on the market. Plus the medical field is constantly making all sorts of new changes with this disease. Currently there are around 88 different meters on the market today. The prices vary but normally start at $9.00 – $149.00. There are 3 meters that will plug into smart Phones to display results.
Most people tend to either have this meter or have used this meter in the past. It stands up well against everyday wear and tear. It is accurate most of the time. Unless you don’t get a full drop of blood on the test strip. It is ready to go right out of the box. No fooling around trying to figure out which buttons to push. The kit comes with everything you need and an easy to read manual for testing and trouble shooting. It is the Bayer Contour Meter. On a scale of one to five insulin shots. I rate this high at 4 shots. The reason I did not give it a five rating is because there are so many more meters on the market today then when Diabetes was being first monitored. I have also attached a link for you to head on over to Amazon to pick up your meter now If you like what this review has offered you.
The next meter I want to add to this list of top five meters. I chose the Keto-Mojo meter. It will test Ketones and blood glucose in the body. Instructional videos on this meter are readily available on youtube and on Amazon. Test strips do not expire. The meter exceeds FDA & International standards. The test strips utilize industry- leading technology.This meter was awarded best in class for customer support and is us based. On a scale of 1-5 insulin needles I give the Keto-Mojo meter 4 and a half needles. I have also included a link to Amazon if you want to go get your kit now
Since we are in the digital age it only makes good sense to recommend our third pick meter in this review. I have chosen the Dario Diabetes Blood Sugar Monitoring Kit for iPhone it is FDA cleared, Easy to use , accurate within +-15%. It is compatible with most IOS phones( check with your provider to be sure. This meter has really impressed me. It can do so much. You no longer have to keep a log of all your results. Everything uploads right into your I phone. I give this meter hands down a 5 insulin rating out of 1-5 score. I have also put a link for a COMPLETE kit from Amazon. This way you have everything you need to do the testing correctly. Head over and pick yours up today! Dario also makes a android phone version and that link is in here too.
Our fourth meter on the list is the Pro Voice V-9 blood glucose meter. I can offer both english and spanish verbal results. It is designed for minimal discomfort when drawing a sample for testing. It is ready to use right out of the box. The test strips have a long expiration life. So on a scale of 1-5 insulin needles. I give this meter three needles. It is good but could be a bit better. Sure it is audible and is not a uncomfortable as other meters. However it just does not offer enough for what you get. If this meter was phone compatible, then you would have something much more to talk about. If you considering picking one up for yourself. Click the Amazon link for it below
Finally our last meter we will review in this page is AUVON DS-W Blood Sugar Test Kit . This meter is state of the art. It has outstanding meter accuracy. comes with cutting edge GDH test strips. FAD-dependent glucose dehydrogenase (GDH-FAD) enzymes for blood glucose measurements. Compared with glucose oxidase (GOD), GDH-FAD avoids interference from blood oxygen variations. No coding is required.multi track lancing device for less pain.I give this meter on a scale of 1-5 insulin needles. a total of five. This meter does everything and more for what you get. There is some minimal inputting needed. However the directions are well detailed. I have a Amazon link for you to click to head over and get yours now.
We are still not finished with this review. There are still a few other things in regards to a blood glucose meter. I really don’t like to give people partial details about a product. To me that feels like the review is just half finished. Once you have decided on the meter you want and have gone ahead and purchased it. How do you calibrate it or make sure the meter is accurate at all?
These are some additional things we will investigate next. My goal now is to be sure you are more then confidant with your new meter.
How Do You Calibrate A Glucose Meter?
I’m going to put up a video clip on how to calibrate your meter. I have never done this and probably really should. I get very stubborn and just don’t want to do another stupid step. My endocrinologist has suggested that I consider a insulin pump.
To me that is not an option. I feel like I am loosing the battle with this disease. I know that is the wrong approach to this disease. I also know that Doctors are here to help but are in no way God. What I mean by that is Miracles still happen.
How Do I Know If My Glucose Meter Inaccurate?
|Improper coding||Some meters must be coded to each container of test strips. Be sure the code number in the device matches the code number on the test strip container.|
|Alcohol, dirt or other substances on your skin||Wash and dry your hands and the testing site thoroughly before pricking your skin.|
|Not enough blood applied to the test strip||Touch a generous drop of blood to the test strip. Don’t add more blood to the test strip after the first drop is applied.|
|Test strip problems||Throw out damaged or outdated test strips. Store strips in their sealed container; keep them away from heat, moisture and humidity. Be sure the strips are meant for your specific glucose meter.|
|Monitor problems||Fully insert the test strip into the monitor. Replace the monitor batteries as needed.|
|Extreme temperatures||Keep your glucose meter and test strips at room temperature.|
|The amount of red blood cells in your blood||If you are dehydrated or your red blood cell count is low (anemia), your test results may be less accurate.|
|Testing site location||If you’re using a site other than your fingertip and you think the reading is wrong, test again using blood from a fingertip. Blood samples from alternate sites aren’t as accurate as fingertip samples when your blood sugar level is rising or falling quickly.|
As you can clearly see that there are lots of variables that can lead to a false reading on your meter. If you don’t use your meter right in the first place, it just will not perform for you.
