The OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meter spots patterns of high and low results, helping people who self-adjust their own insulin doses to make informed decisions.

The Verio IQ’s colour screen and a clean, white finish give the meter a modern look to match its smart technology.

The meter exceeds the 2013 ISO blood glucose meter accuracy standards with over 99% of results falling within the accuracy boundaries.

High and low patterns

A main feature of the OneTouch Verio IQ is that it notifies you of high and low patterns in your results which is very handy for anyone who self adjusts their own insulin.

Say you have had a couple of low blood sugar levels before breakfast on 2 out of the last 3 days, the Verio IQ will actually give you a ‘heads up’ and let you know.

This allows you to take note and make any appropriate changes to your carbohydrate or insulin to help prevent another morning low reading taking place.

Key features of the OneTouch Verio IQ

  • High and low patterns
  • Meter lights up when a test strip is inserted
  • Colour screen
  • Easy to navigate menus
  • Memory stores 750 test results
  • Easy meal tagging
  • No batteries needed - charge from a computer, laptop or power socket
  • Very small blood sample needed - 0.4 microlitres

Testing in the dark is made much easier as when a test strip is inserted, the Verio IQ lights up its screen and the test strip.

As well as boasting a 750 result memory, the Verio IQ provides averages over 7, 14, 30 and 90 days. What’s more, the meter shows you how often you had high and low results before meals across each of these time periods.

The Verio IQ provides very accurate results because each blood sample is analysed 500 times before a result is produced and the meter compensates for interfering factors, such as vitamin C and pain relievers.

Transcript

It’s called the IQ because it’s a clever meter that’s able to spot patterns on your behalf - which is ideal if you adjust your own doses. If you’ve been high before dinner over the last 2 or 3 days, the meter will tell you.

OneTouch have a habit of making very solid housings for their meters and the accessories and this is no exception. You’ll notice the meter has a colour screen - which gives the meter a nice, modern feel. At night, the front end of the meter lights up brightly - which is helpful for low light conditions.

Let’s take a look at some of the features now that put the IQ into Verio IQ. You’ll notice that the meter has a back button which makes navigating through the menus easier.

  • The results log is very easy to navigate and you can scroll through slowly or quickly. You can see several results at the same time on screen which is helpful.
  • The averages are comprehensive, giving 7, 14, 30 and 90 day averages. Let’s look at my fortnight average - it shows X, Y.
  • If I click in, I see I have had X low results and Y high results for my before meal figures. You can set your own personal before meal high and low limits on the meter

There are no batteries to replace with the Verio IQ. The meter can be charged through a computer or through a wall socket. A USB cable and charging adapter are both provided with the meter.

So that’s the Verio IQ - it’s a modern meter that provides you with insight into how your levels are trending and is very easy to use.

The Verio IQ battery can be recharged and will last for an expected 1 to 2 weeks between each recharging.

OneTouch Verio Gold Test Strip

The OneTouch Verio test strips stand out amongst other test strips thanks to their gold colour, but they also have a range of other advantages.

The test strips require a very small blood sample of just 0.4 microlitres and blood can be applied to either the left or right side of the test strip, which makes it easier to apply blood from fingers on either hand.
