Has anyone bought and/or used a Bayer Contour USB Monitor? I found it on the Bayer website and liked what I saw. But, I wanted to see if anyone has some input about it'ws performance.
It looks really good paper. They're a little oricey. BC/BS doesn't have it on their list of a covered meters yet. Maybe they will soon and I'll get one to try out myself.I have heard of the Bayer meter but have not used it. i have not heard anything bad about it. It is probably a good meter.
Thanks for your input, ett.I never heard of the Bayer Contour USB Monitor before this post.
From reading the description; it doesn't sound much different than their regular Contour Meter.
I use the Bayer Contour Meter; and am happy with it.
I am also happy with their software.
I had the exact same problem.I know this is a bit of an older thread but I purchased a Contour USB last week as I was just diagnosed with T2 last week.
THe meter is great. Uses regular contour strips and looks great. I love the color screen and the sleek look of the meter. It fits nicely with OneTouch delica lancer.
But,, it seems to be reading so high. I went to my doctor who tested me and then wanted me to test myself. He was using a regular contour meter and he came up with a reading of 171, I tested and showed 210. So he told me to just assume my reading is a bit lower than what meter shows. That seems to be a huge difference to me and I have got to do a bit more research into the situation. Id hate to have to get a different meter.
I absolutely agree! Never assume that your doc's reading is any more true than yours. What if their meter is off and your higher number is the correct one?Are we assuming the Dr.'s Contour is correct? Might be a bad assumption.
