    It's good product for people with diabetes or prediabetes and need to check regularly how well it is controlled. Avoids ahving going to the hospital. However, it's not easy to use. Inspite of following the procedure to the dot, I got only one cartridge to work. At $15/cartridge it costly.

    I use this test every other month - just to make sure my diabetes is under control - every three to six months I am tested by my Doctor and have found this test reliable and close to lab results - It is very easy to use - just follow the directions exactly - watch the provided DVD a couple of times and lay everything out before you start - I watch the dvd again as I do the test - very simple.. and makes me feel better knowing I am on target with my A1C. Price is reasonable.

    If you are comfortable reading and following instructions precisely, this product is terrific. It is so reasonably priced that I check my A1C monthly in order to stay on top of it. The results have been very close to the results I have gotten from the lab (no results can be expected to match up exactly when it comes to blood sugar). Also, Walmart only charges .97 for shipping, so it does not even pay for me to go out and shop for it!

    I don't know how accurate this product is because I haven't checked it against the doctor's office. Two tests come in this kit. I did the first test and it showed 6.7. I had ordered this product through the mail. Perhaps in this heat, it hadn't come to complete room temperature before I used it (even though I waited awhile before performing the test). I performed the second test one week later and got 5.9. I don't know if that reflects on accuracy or not. It is very easy to use and the lancets are wonderful. I wish they sold these by themselves.

    • A. Just spoke with customer service; the meter is good for the two uses only; these are included in each kit. After that buy a new kit, which comes with a new meter and start the process all over again.

    • A. The monitor comes with each kit which comes with 2 test modules. I don't think you would want to keep the monitor for more then 30 days because the battery life may be an issue. Here is the instruction video I found on the Bayer A1C Now site and they have a toll free number to call if you have any questions.Hope that helps. http://www.bayerdiabetes.com/us/templates/flash/a1cnow_video_eng.html
