Blood Glucose Meters

Shopping for a blood glucose meter can be overwhelming and more than a little bit intimidating, and why shouldn’t it? Getting accurate readings from a good quality glucose meter can quite literally determine the outcome of a life-or-death situation. Fortunately, there are a few brands of blood glucose meters that work perfectly with diabetic recipes, diabetic diet plans, exercise and medication to help control your diabetes and life the life you want to live. These include One Touch, and Accu-Chek.

One Touch

The One Touch glucose meters are a very popular brand of glucose meters for several reasons. One of these reasons is that you can test your glucose levels in other places than your fingertips. A smaller required blood sample, results in 5 seconds, and a large, easy-to-read display also add to the benefits that make the One Touch glucose meters so popular.  It is also easy to monitor and keep track of past results because some of the One Touch glucose meters can hold up to 500 past results along with the date and time the measurement was taken. These results can be downloaded straight to diabetic software from One Touch and can contribute greatly to your records and management efforts for your diabetes.


The Accu-Chek glucose monitors on the market today are another great brand of glucose meters to invest in. Accu-Chek glucose meters can also be tested on alternative sites instead of just the fingertips. Along with diabetic diets, diabetic recipes, exercise and medication, the Accu-Chek glucose meters can greatly help management. They also have 500 past test result memory, and come with accessories like a case, record diary, and extra batteries. Only a minute amount of blood is needed for testing, too. All of these make the Accu-Chek glucose meters very popular among diabetics.
