Hello All -
Hope everybody had a nice holiday!
I am looking into a new meter. Does anybody use Bayer Breeze 2? Any comments?

All meters perform to the same standards where measuring blood is concerned. The rest is packaging. Get what you're most comfortable using or the one your insurance covers. I use the One Touch meters (Ultra, mini) 'cause I like/use some of the bells & whistles :-)

I have the Breeze 2 and love it!  It's very easy to use and it's fast, too.

It's most important to use a home meter that is accurate. Consumer's Reports tested meters a while back and found that ReliOn from Walmart and the one touch ultra mini to be the most accurate and consistent. I found that ultra mini corresponds very, very closely to the measurements I receive from laboratory blood tests.

It can be really disconcerting to measure your fasting blood sugar in the morning and get readings that differ by 20 points from a reading taken two minutes earlier.
