Testing The Best Blood Glucose Meters On The Market
Blood glucose meters are a neccesary and reality for the over 30 million people in North America who suffer from diabetes. It can be annoying to test your blood glucose levels, but the good news is there have been huge leaps in accuracy, discretion and speed in 2018 models.
If you’re in the market for a new testing kit that will last for years there are a few key aspects you should keep in mind before committing to one brand over another.
- Warranty – manufacturers should back their products against defect or malfunction, ideally more than 2 years.
- Strips – as most diabetics test daily, the number of included strips as well as how easy they are to get refills for.
- Accuracy – it’s clear that overall glucose meter accuracy has increased as has technology, but verifying this through anecdotal evidence from seasoned users is always good.
