**Reason for purchase**
Im known as quite a forgetful person. I'm quite bad at going to visit my friend for a long weekend and leaving my blood glucose kit at home. Ive also worked my way through a couple of kits just through losing them so i didn't want anything that was really expensive. At the same time i have to test my sugar levels 4 times a day (this is especially around my best friend we would call each other "enablers" to eating and drinking badly) so i wanted something that came recommended and this was it.
TRUEone Blood Glucose Testing is a convienient all in one blood glucose tester with 50 test strips and a built in meter. Gets results in just 5 seconds and can be used on the fingertip or forearm. - I think that this is pretty standard as well but to be honest i always do it on my fingertips so i don't have any experience of drawing blood from other areas.
No coding -This is where im probabily wrong but it means you can use any uncoded test strips -saves me buying 2 lots of strips. Saying that this isnt for every day use so i havent got through the 50 strips that came with it.
1 Microlitre Blood Sample- This is a feature i like. I seem to have problems drawing blood and this seems to accept smaller amounts than other machines i have used.
Results in just 5 seconds - all my monitors have been results in five seconds so i would rate this as pretty standard.
This is quite compact so could easily fit in a handbag.
**Would i recommend**
Yes as its quite cheap and comes from a company that specialists in diabetes kits.I would say that its worth going to your gp first as they will be able to test your levels and give you a kit if needed.
