    If I have a pizza as an evening meal.. my bg can be normal when I goto bed and 11 or 12 when I get up

    If I have salad it could be 5 or 6 when I get up

    The contour next range of meters is one of the more reliable and consistent of all the meters I've used

    YES.
    I’m type 2 on insulin and I use the Contour. I also record my results in the App MySugr which gives me an estimate of my HbA1c and when I have my blood test twice a year at the Dr’s the result is very very close, so yes, the contour is good.
