By Jesus Chirino

It would not be possible to keep your glucose levels under control if you were not able to track them on a regular basis and make the needed adjustments in your diabetes management plan. The One Touch Ultra Smart Meter can help you control your diabetes and keep track of you blood glucose control.

Manufactured by Lifescan, the One Touch Ultra Smart Meter is a glucose meter and an electronic logbook in one. It will allow you to store important information like insulin doses, the amount of physical activity performed and the amount of medicine taken right into its spacious memory. The meter kit comes equipped with the meter, the test strips, Ultra Soft lancets, carrying case and lancing device with clear cap, which will allow for alternate site testing.

The One Touch Ultra Smart meter only requires a very tiny drop of blood (1 microliter) and it takes a fast five seconds to give you an accurate reading. Make sure that you calibrate the meter for the test strips that you are going to use. Your handbook will teach exactly what you must do to calibrate the meter successfully.

The display screen is large and very easy to read and it has a backlight for easy reading in the dark. The meter uses two AAA alkaline batteries which come already installed in the meter. They will last about 500 readings, depending on how much the backlight is used.

If you want to store all your data into your computer, Lifescan offers data interface cable along with the needed software. This kit, which is sold separately, will let you transfer all the data in the meter right into your computer.
