Had my yearly checkup today and everything is looking good. HBA1C of 43 (just over 6 in old money). My GP is great and asked what meter I used. I'm currently using the Bayer Breeze 2, which works well but my only complaint is the size as it's too big to keep in my pocket when out for the evening. She suggested I try the iBGStar, which connects to an IPhone and is much smaller. A couple of question though to those of you using it: 1. I assume it doesn't need to be connected to the IPhone to work? 2. What's it like when used with an adapter on an IPhone 5? Do they have any plans to support the iphone 5 natively. Don't like the idea of the adapter, but I guess it would be ok. 3. What's the accuracy like? I searched the forum and there seem to be various posts about accuracy not being great. 4. I checked out the Sanofi website for more info and one of their video states you need to discard the first blood sample, i.e. finger prick, squeeze finger for sample, clean, then sample again? This seems way too complicated and something I've never done before with any meter. Is this really needed? Thanks for all the help!
