My husband has had to update some of his diabetic equipment, and one of the things he updated was his blood glucose monitoring system. He is now on insulin, which he wasn't before. This came about as the result of a serious infection he developed in his toe which sent him to the hospital for five days. His doctor wanted to be certain that his meter was accurate. So off I go to look for a new system.
I purchased the Bayer (Ascensia) Breeze 2 at Walmart. This seems to be a very nice meter. It requires no coding and will hold a disc with ten tests on it, which is convenient. My husband gets his results in five seconds, and the meter needs only a small amount of blood to be able to do a reading.
The disc is easy to load, and the meter has a 420 test memory and four selectable averages. It is a small size, so if my husband needs to take it somewhere, that would present no problem.
From what I've seen of the meter so far, I'm impressed with it, and I feel that I got it for a decent price.
