I'm really glad to see that the AFB is making a big deal out of the
point that we don't have access to more mainstream meters. Not to
fault or appear ungrateful to those smaller companies who are making
the effort, but when I use my FreeStyle meter, I just take it into
the endo's office and she downloads it right there. That's really
convenient for me and gives the office staff the chance to work with
familiar software and print-outs. Of course, there is the insurance
issue as well. And this business of replacing the meter every three
months, that's flat out ridiculous! Talk about waste! Bad! Bad!
But I'm holding my breath a bit here because once again, this old
Braille 'n speak's battery won't charge. If this thing can't be
portable, yours truly will not be a very happy camper. So I
definitely paid attention to this review. But my little FreeStyle
only requires .3 microliters of blood, much less than any of the
meters discussed here. I'm holding out. Ahem, while holding my
breath, I guess. Hey, this is nothing compared to the kicking and
screaming you're going to hear from me in a year when I have to
change pumps. Trust me on that one!
Okay, I'll grow up and sign off now. <grin.>
