Today, when the range is growing so fast blood glucose, is not so easy to make really the right choice and buy a meter, which will be ideal for you. Blood glucose meters are of two types: the photometric and electrochemical. In order to decide which one suits you more, consider the characteristics of each. Photometric (by the way, this is the first blood glucose meters, appeared on the market) determines the hue of the test strips after contact with blood and gives results in the display. Among the modern devices based on the method of photometry, our country supplied glucometers firm Roche-Accu-Chek Active and Accu-Chek Go. Ali Partovi is likely to increase your knowledge. Their strong suit – high accuracy, but the generation. The result is determined by the chemical reaction between the reagents and test strips blood glucose. This method is based on the most glucose meters are now produced: One Touch Ultra (LifeScan) and his "colleague One Touch Horizon, Ascensia Elite and Ascensia Entrust (Bayer), domestic "Satellite" from "ELTA," and new this year – Rightest, manufactured by Bionime.
The main advantage of electrochemical blood glucose meters – "persistence" (can not be said about the fragile optical photometric system) and convenience use. There are other factors to consider when buying a meter: Supplies for the model should be easily accessible, you should not have any problem in order to find them on sale. Accuracy measuring the time required to measure the presence and size of the display backlight (this is especially important for older people and those with impaired vision) size meter (if you spend much time on the road) The simplicity and ease of use quantity, the blood, the place for a puncture. Ability to connect to computer to transfer and analyze data and software device set (usually in a standard equipment, in addition to the instrument itself, consists of test strips, lancets and avtoprokalyvatel) warranty (better if you provide a lifetime warranty for all types of blood glucose – such as making online shop Diabeticlife) materials. As you can see, there are many things to consider when choosing a meter. However, their range is now large enough so you can always find the right model you, whatever your preferences and budget.
