    Thanks for the great review Allison. It seems that Telcare hasn’t really thought about the user experience all that much. Though it’s good to have another MANLY black meter (NOT). Rechargeable batteries are a big plus.

    Can you download readings to a PC/Mac?

    Thanks for the review, Allison. Like you, I use the One Touch UltraLink which sends the results to my pump. Using Carelink Pro (my endo has it, I don’t), I see my meter BGs plotted on the same chart as my CGM BG curve as well as my boluses (which can indicate if the meter result is before or after a meal). So, personally, I see no compelling reason to switch. (The per-strip price is nice, though!)

    The OneTouch, though, also has the strip port at the top, so I’m not quite sure what the concern is with that. I just turn it upside-down!

    Thanks for the review. Size matters to us and has since the kids were small.

    Then it was does it fit in little hands now it is how easy is it to stuff into a pocket and go.

    The new technology is great for younger, more tech savvy people with diabetes. Most of my patients are older and want simplicity ,accuracy and reliability

    I and my colleagues have extensive experience with this device and think you did a great, comprehensive job reviewing this technology. You’re right on the money! (We use the device in our disease management programs and use the data real- time to provide interventions. We just have the data directed into our system, as well as the MyTelcare website, because we do some more sophisticated analyses for use by our nurses.)
