Reviewer Product Rating:

Former Patient Voices Contest winner and D-blogger Melissa Lee reviews the OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meter -- and gives it a perfect 5 rating!

REVIEWER'S BREAKDOWN -

PROs:

  • device is slender enough to slip into a pocket
  • sample size is the smallest yet from OneTouch -- 0.4 microliters
  • there's no coding required for test strips
  • has a bright, easy-to-read color screen with large numbers
  • its port light is large and bright enough for easy glucose checks in darkness
  • pattern management alerts allow you to see trends by time of day

CONs:

  • includes no customization for tagging blood glucose values; the only options are for before or after meals
  • as a rechargeable device, you must keep track of how much the device is charged and of the accompanying mini-USB cable
