    Hi, not been on here for some time as I fell of the wagon. I have recently felt so lousy that I tested myself with my old acuchek aviva nano and got a shock. I need to get back on track again! my fasting levels were in excess of twelve on three occasions!
    I just looked in to see if there were any new meters on the market and all I seem to see is the Freestyle Libra thing.
    To be honest I am so out of touch I would appreciate any advice as to what to get to monitor my levels. I am going to be testing a lot while I check out the effects of various food stuffs on my levels as I want to fully take on the low carb diet and avoid anything that disagrees with my metabolism.

    What meter system would you recommend, especially for this initial period of intense testing of everything.
