    I certainly do need it as I have to test my blood glucose three times a day the same as those on insulin. I also have to keep a diary of the readings to report to my diabetic consultant when I go to hospital. I was merely saying that to help other people.
    Please think twice before being so judgmental about something you clearly have the wrong information about.

    there are other types of injection used for diabetes that is not insulin. and no it us not heroin. why so insulting about something you don't know about. unlike you I was trying to help other people.

    I agree with the others.

    Leave this for those who need it, don't be taking it just because it looks like a 'cool gadget'.

    I do need it. I use a monitor and the application process asks which kind of treatment you use which I answered truthfully. it then told me I qualified. I am sorry if I gave upset people by telling the truth and only as I thought it would help othets. pleade get off your high horse

    Quine your initial comment gave the wrong impression hence us high horse riders responses with the trusty sword of truthfulness and shield of condemnation.

    I'm sure your forgiven - this time 8)

    If a person NEEDS to test their sugars as stipulated by a Doctor or Consultant you are given one on the NHS, you can then get the test strips on prescription - so no - I don't understand why anyone would really need one as they are supplied TO THOSE THAT NEED IT anyway.
    If you NEED a glucose monitor and haven't got one ASK your GP or Consultant for one, if they say no, ask them why you can't get one on the NHS. Usually the answer will be is because you do not actually need it.
    Basically, the 'worried well' want one, everyone else will already have one. :3

    Ordered 20 to make a fortune profit down the local clinic......

    Seriously, haven't ordered but have informed someone who would be interested and have a need for one. Thanks Bozza

    just be sure that your surgery/gp will prescribe the test strips !!!
    -=blootoon=-
    these are usually supplied free to your local health centre, i think the companies make the money from the testing strips, so if you need a new one then just ask your nurse at the diabetes clinic, think i am on my 3rd one now as i think when they push up the price of the test strips then i am issued a new machine again :)

    My hubby is type 2 diabetic - he's on tablets. Would he benefit from this device? He has his blood sugar tested every 3 months at surgery, atm. Thanks!

    No, T2DM's on oral therapy only do not need at home BM machines and thr advicde from SIGN/NICE is that they do not need to regularly record BM's as it will not alter the treatment they are on.
    Hope that helps.

    I'm T1 and I'm currently using the Glucomen LX tester. I think the one in the deal does not test for keytones.

    Let my boyf know and he says he already has one (?), can't say I'm an expert on these monitors. But yes, please let these go to people who really need it :)

    He has Addisons and Type I Diabetes "rarer than rocking horse sh*t", as he puts it.
