Research shows that optimum blood glucose control is the key to managing diabetes and preventing its complications. For many people with diabetes, the blood glucose meter is a crucial tool for doing just that. In the short term, a meter can help you avoid blood glucose highs and lows, and feel your best.
By testing over time, you can better understand how diet, exercise, stress, and illness can affect your blood glucose levels, so that you can be armed with the information you need to achieve the best control possible of your diabetes. Old meters may lose their accuracy so it is important to replace your current meter frequently. We know that this may be difficult for families with a tight budget so we have teamed up with Beyond Medical to be able to offer our visitors a testing meter for little or no cost.
