New meter

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 250

I have not been able to test my BG as I ran out of strips for the One Touch meter we inherited from my mother in law. The pot of 50 strips was 32 pounds at the clinic, but I just bought a meter, lancets and 75 strips for under 30 pounds in Lidl.
I had been concerned that I did not know what my readings were, but the first test with the new meter shows 6.4 mmol/l. I am really pleased with that.
