    Do you mean a TEE2 blood monitor? I haven't heard of a TEE2+...

    It's a good device, but if you don't apply enough blood to the test strips, you will just waste those.

    I started with a TEE2 device myself, but have switched since to a Contour Next One device.

    You can get one (full kit, including lancing device and case) for free from: https://www.contournextone.co.uk/Register_uk?promo=Web16

    It's quite a significant step up in term of device quality, more accurate than the TEE2, easier to use, can connect to a smartphone, and test strips allow for a "second chance" to apply more blood if required (so very few wasted strips).

    Test strips are slightly more expensive to buy, but can be bough from eBay at around £11/£12 for 50...

    You can alter the depth of the lancet if you struggle to get blood. It is also easier if your hands are warm - wash in hot water and rub dry. I also struggle - after 4 years! And I find my thumbs are best, but I do alternate all of my fingers, both hands. You will get the knack.
