    Anyone know if DVLA accepts a GlucomenLX Plus as suitable for recording blood glucose levels?

    I use it so it had better be! - especially as my GP's surgery gave it to me.

    Edited:- Yes, because it conforms to the ISO standard.

    I was also given one as I was also prescribed a sulphonylurea which could cause hypos.
    Are you using GlucoLog? I've just downloaded it and when the cable arrives from Menarini I'll be able to copy data off the glucometer to PC. At present I just copy results by hand into a spreadsheet I constructed that does all the calcs annd graphs. GlucoLog will save a bit of time and give more useful data.

    Tried Glucolog but my computer will not recognise that the meter is connected to it. Spent an hour and a half on the phone with Menari technical help desk and they gave up, promised to send me a new cable which never arrived.

    So long as it holds 3 months or readings then yes.. if not then no..

    I test 10 times a day so have a meter with a .memory or 2000 readings so there is enough

    Hi @searley You need to look the age of threads if you're replying to someone. Better to start a new thread if you have questions.
