Cor, if only there was a website which had a load of blood glucose meter reviews… ;-)

https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/about-us/about-our-reviews/

The best one to go for, in my view, is the FreeStyle Lite (https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2009/06/review-abbott-freestyle-lite/) as it’s small, sexy, accurate, has a light that lights up the test strip and is, well, just good.

I use it with a finger pricker from the Wavesense Jazz (https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2009/04/review-wavesense-jazz-blood-glucose-meter/) rather than the one it came with because it’s tiny and works as well as any other finger pricker (I don’t believe the hype about painless finger prickers, when it comes down to it you’re still sticking a sharpened bit of steel into your finger whichever one you use!)

The Nano (https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2009/06/review-roche-accu-chek-aviva-nano/) is quite a nice meter. Small and funky but they use the ugliest test strips on the market. A minor point but, hey, I can be picky if I want to! :-)
