I have tried a bunch of meters. Seems like I get a free one in the mail almost every week. My First meter was a true2go from Walgreens. I liked it enough to get a TrueResult. Then I got the OneTouch ultra mini in the mail and I really liked it. The lancet device was really nice. Not long after that I got the FreeStyle Lite and I really like it also. It did not take a huge drop if blood and it had a nice light that shown onto the test strip so you could see where to put the test sample. Then just the other day I got a meter that I never heard of. It is called a Glucocard 01. It is a pretty nice meter but the best part is it hardly takes any blood at all and you get 30 seconds to add more if you need to. The test strips are not easy to find and it seems like mail order is a must for them the up side to them it that they are fairly cheap.
So out of all the ones I have tried so far I like the FreeStyle lite the best. However I have a bunch of truetest strips so I have to stay with my main meter being the TrueResult. I do want to try the Accu-Chek meter though. My problem is I have to go with the cheaper strips because I have no insurance. My sister-in-law works for a pharmacy so she gets them for me @ cost..
Anyway I would love to hear what your favorite meter is and why.
