What is the Best Glucose Meter?
This is a tricky question as there is no right answer for everyone.
Guide for Selecting a Glucose Meter.
- Cost: For most people living with diabetes, the cost can be a major factor when choosing a meter. Although the cost of the meter should be a factor in your decision, the test strips are the consumable product for blood glucose testing. Make sure to check on the cost of the test strips before choosing a meter.
- Features: What really matters to you? Do you need 90 day averaging? Do you need a talking glucose meter? Do you need a glucose monitor that lights up so you can see it better? Really think about the features you need before deciding on a device.
- Test Result Logging: Each meter has its own logging limits, so if you need 90 day averaging, you need to consider that in your decision.
- Product Availability: Just because you've found a glucose meter and test strips for a great price doesn't mean you can find that brand of test strips when you run short while on vacation or out of town when it's time for a refill. Product availability should be considered when choosing a brand.
