Yesterday I started using a Dario Blood Glucose monitor. It came with 150 strips, so I will give it a try until those 150 run out before making any decisions.
I have LOVED my One Touch Ultra (the chunky one) for years. In fact, here is an old, old video I made where I’m pretty sure I kissed the One Touch. I say this to point out that I’m very brand loyal when it comes to my monitor.
If you’re not aware, the Dario is a meter that comes in a cool “container” that holds the lancing device, strips and a little dongle thingy that you plug into your iPhone. I just got started and did a test before bed and right when I woke up. The iPhone app has some cool analytics stuff and I’m interested to see some of the graphs it comes up with in the future.
I’m curious if any other TuDiabetes users have used this meter. My exposure has been limited, but I find that using my iPhone to also be my meter has been clunky and I don’t have a good rhythm yet. Does that ever get better? Also, do you find your iPhone battery draining quickly?
