One annoying feature is the dim, very dim display. I bought this Ultra to replace the Ultra that had the same problem.
The results are hard to read because the lighting is very low
I don't like it. It takes more blood to put on the test strip. I also don't like the user guide. It is a fold out piece of paper, like a newspaper. I have a FreeStyle InsuLinx meter and I loved it. It had a touchscreen. But, I'm on a Medicare Advantage Plan, they will no longer cover test strips for this meter. They will only pay for the OneTouch Meter. OneTouch has no touchscreen meters & they stopped making the booklet for all the meters. The company that makes the OneTocuch meters called me today & told me that.
Having come from a freestyle lite to the one touch ultra 2 because that is all my insurance will cover now, I can assure you it uses more than 1 speck of blood. You have to make sure you have a good amount before you test - otherwise you get an error. Also one touch ultra 2 requires coding - I haven't had to code in 5 or 6 years. And it comes with a single sheet user guide large enough to cover a window in your house - so it is not self-evident. I do not know why these insurance companies make the decisions they do - bummer!
Having to control what I eat and stress over because I am borderline to becoming a Diabetic due to family history, I must monitor my blood glucose every day until I can lose at least 45 pounds and learn how to eat healthy. Since I have been using this product, I am truly satisfied of its features that helps me understand what I must do to change my bad habits. The only con I can think of is the size of the device and its traveling bag. I carry a small purse for safety reasons, and the kit has forced me to move to a large purse. I will definitely purchase the OneTouch Mini this evening if I can locate the color pink.
Easy to Use; Accurate;Stores info. for Dr. or Nurse to review; can upload to computer & print out; Small & Easy to transport; Comments capability helps with control; Adjustable Depth of lancet is nice.
I have wasted a few strips & would rather not have to change lancets daily.
Love it great price and easy to use.
Would not purchase any other brand
I have a old one that has worked good for 8 years , so I get a new one it worked OK for 5 times then quit working so went back to old one !!!
