My favorite of all of my meters...


I'm still kind of new to the whole diabetes thing. I was diagnosed with type 2 in Oct 2012 and I've been through three meters already. This one is my favorite overall. I love how it gives you an average reading, I used to test three times a day and doing it at night it can be really hard to see. This is the only meter that I know of with the backlight that helps you see. I also like how it stores the readings so you can go back and compare or keep a log for the next follow-up appt. The whole sticking myself thing took a while to get used to. For each reading I had to mentally prepare myself because if I didn't I would have a panic attack. The Delica lancing device can be adjusted so that you're not sticking too deep but are still able to get enough blood for your reading without it hurting too much. They don't give you many test strips in the kit and to buy them with no insurance it's just too expensive. You can buy them brand new and sealed on eBay if u can't afford to buy in the stores. I haven't really had too many errors with using the meter or the test strips. Maybe only a couple of times from the test strip sitting in the meter for too long while I'm trying to get blood. Compared to my meter now, TrueResult, I wish I could go back to using my One Touch but it's too expensive to replenish the supplies I need.

One Touch Ultra2 Blood Glucose Meter does the job.


When Len changed HMO's 15 months ago he was given a new meter, and had to use the corresponding test strips. His HMO have screwed up on sending enough test strips for him, and they have been promised for a week, and not received. Len tests between 4 and 6 times a day, so I contacted his doctor's office. They said that they didn't have the ones he uses but had a new meter, and test strips for him. I asked if he could return the meter when he got his delivery. They said to keep it. This has to be about the eighth meter he has had. It comes in a pouch with a lancet device, and 10 test strips. The doctor's office gave him a box with more One Touch Ultra Blue test strips in it. All meters are similar. You read the instructions, and follow them. New meters not only give you your reading, but date, time, and also an average for the past month. Len found it easy to use, but feels it is such a waste of money that it cannot be returned.

I really don't love it.


I have a ulrta one touch 2 and I really don't like it at all. I had a free style lite and loved it. Because our insurance doesn't cover the free style I had to swithch. The makers of ultra 2 told me they allow for a 30% difference in readings for meters. For a diabetic thats huge. I should also add I am not insulin dependant thank goodness!

Easy and Accurate


I am a newly diagnosed diabetes patient.  I was worried about how hard it would be to take my blood and accurately read the results.  This meter has various lancet depth numbers.  While sticking my finger is still a little painful, I can adjust how deep the lancet goes.  The reading shows on a screen and you can save the readings for the time of the day you test.  This will give you your averages at just a touch of a button.
