Some of the old meters you were able to get an idea of if your blood sugar was low, medium, or high via the test strips. This was really helpful if the meter stopped working.
I don’t know of any meter that you can do this with, not to mention any names, such as Roche, but pharmaceutical /equipment companies say that their products are so reliable that you do not need this function any longer... I know as I have brought this topic of conversation up more than once. The number of times I have had two blood testing meters, one thrust into each arm pit to warm up sufficiently to take a measurement on those cold days when you are out doing something fun, I can not remember, but if I had a kr for every occasion I would be a wealthy man!
Does anyone know of a currently available test strip that it’s possible to check if you are low, medium, or high on?
To any drug companies that might use this site, for the diabetic that lounges on the couch all day, your blood testing products are probably rather good, for the diabetic who doesn’t, some contingency really would be a great assistance... such as to be visually able to tell from the strip the rough value of the BS... better yet a reliable BS wrist watch... or the holy grail for diabetics... a cure (sadly as pharmaceutical companies see diabetes as a cash cow, there really isn’t the incentive to pursue this goal...).
