My son sent me this. 85% accuracy doesn't seem all that great if you are on tight control but it might help allay the fears of the newbies... Of course the size may present a bit of a problem... (LOL!)

Current meters are only required to be 80% accurate- so this one is actually right up there with them and maybe even a little better!

I wonder how much we will have to pay? And do you think the US will allow them to be sold here? I mean- no more test strips- our whole economy might go belly-up (sarcasm intended) if we don't have millions of dollars in test strips being used every day-

I have read of other bloodless meters before, but none of them ever hit the market......(Twilight Zone Theme Song here)


Thanks for posting this Jeannie! Sorry I'm in such a snarky mood today- it's nice out and I want to play hookie, but my boss keeps preventing me from having any fun-sigh
