  • Glucometers are to be coded first from the code on the testing strips pack. then there is a testing solution with fixed reading by which you should check the accuracy of the code.then check the expiry date of the testing strips also.still there will be difference between glucometer and lab testings.

  • I have found Accuchek meters as very consistent.

    J&J One select simple always ready lower so i stopped using it.

    I had started with Accuchek Integra, switched to One Touch Select Simple and then finally settled with Accuchek Active as strip costs is now less than 1500 if you buy a lot of 100.

  • It depends on whether you are using a branded glucose meter or a local one. Branded glucose meters are always preferred by the doctors. Some of the best glucose meters you can rely on are accu chek active, one touch and bayer contour Ts. More information can be found on
