    This meter reminds me a little of the iBG Star meter, which connects to your iphone and allows you to upload your glucose readings to an app you install on your phone.

    I used the iBG star for a while when it was first released. And I liked it but I found the software wasn’t great.

    For instance, I was testing a lot since I was pregnant and would often have more than one post-meal result. But the software didn’t let me specify which was my 1 hour and 2 hour reading. It only had a section for post-meal readings.

    So I’m curious how you found the organization of the software. Do you feel you can capture all the notes you want to make on your blood sugars in an organized manner?

    I essentially went back to paper and pencil recordings, which sounds old-school, but allows me to better capture through my written notes what’s going on…aka the big picture.

    I definitely like how the readings can be uploaded to a cloud, allowing health care providers to view them.

    I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent as a diabetes nurse educator having people tell me over the phone what their readings are. This is much more efficient and will allow health care providers to reach more clients.

    Thanks for the through review!

      Hi Melissa,

      I am the Marketing Communications Specialist for ForaCare. In response to your question, the Test N’GO uploads every reading to the iFORA app. The iFORA App automatically categorizes the reading based on whether you have marked the reading in the meter as pre or post meal ,as well as stores the readings based on time and date. Another great feature with our app is that on each reading you can record notes, a key-broad will pop-up and let you customize your note that is specific to that particular reading. It’s a digital log book! Through out those pencils. If you have any other questions or would like more detail information please call our office 805-498-8188 ask to speak with Adrian, he is our Software Specialist. Here is my email address as well danielledeveau@foracare.com

    Did they give any more information about accuracy. Any Clarke Error Grid results published?

    Taidoc’s claimed accuracy data appears to be at http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cdrh_docs/reviews/K111890.pdf (under FORA Diamond Mini)

    On the other hand, the predicate meter (TD-4277) didn’t perform well in independent testing: http://www.researchgate.net/publication/41426182_System_accuracy_evaluation_of_27_blood_glucose_monitoring_systems_according_to_DIN_EN_ISO_15197/file/e0b49529ee10cd3af7.pdf

    This looks like a great device, but is one if those that carries a high price tag for test strips. Over a dollar for each test? For someone who must test 3-4 times a day, that is over $150 a month for test strips. I know it can be done cheaper, so why the high price for strips?
