I am hoping to deal with it through diet and exersise, I have COPD and don't want any more drugs.
Thanks for the reply.
I have used Accu-Check for years now, but I just had to replace my meter a few weeks ago and because my current prescription for chemstrips is for Accu-Check, I got the exact same meter (Accu-Check Aviva) except they had made some improvements/upgrades to it. My old Aviva did not give me my 7-day, 14-day, and 30-day average. It also did not have alarms... and yes, this one came with the new lancing device, Accu-Chek Multiclix, and I really do like it! Most of the time it doesn't even feel like I've pricked myself. The lancing device is nice.kazorp,
Also accucheck is supposed to have a GREAT lancing device.
