ReliOn Prime Meter

Inexpensive for those who need to test quite often!

Pros: Cheap accesories, Little blood needed, Easy to use and read with Large display, 14 Day and 30 Day averages

Cons: Not very easy to navigate, some what confusing even with the instructions close at hand, had 1 or 2 off readings in the few weeks I have been using it

Overall: Good! I find it a helpful and reliable tool for monitoring my blood sugar and giving myself the correct dose of insulin. Affordable, you can buy 100 test strips for under 25 dollars!

Vegetarian Diet

Vegetarian and Diabetes

Pros: healthy, cruelty free

Cons: can be difficult to balance a diabetic diet that is vegetarian, must work at including protein until you learn the right foods, difficult to eat out

Overall: I was diabetic for 8 years before type 1 diabetes hit, and went back to vegetarian eating for almost a year recently. Before diabetes I felt a hundred times better as a diabetic; that was not so recently. Maybe it was just me, but it seemed more difficult to eat healthy and find all the things I needed, such as protein. I ended up completely depleting iron, and paid dearly for it. I now seldom eat meat, choosing lean meat only and cruelty-free meat and eggs.
