Spotted an avert for this device at selly oak hosptial in birmingham today. then i was handed a promotional code by one of the nurses.

promo code = USBVUK5 gets you a £5.00 discount at the checkout

+ get a free charger when you register your device

basically you get £5.00 off the regular price

Not a deal that would be useful to most, but hopefully it will helpful to someone!! the nurses seemed to rated the device highly + the desktop sync software looks good. the device is the same size as a usb pen so great for carrying around

Just why?...........blood sugar monitors are free for diabetics

I have only ever been given 1 meter approx 9 years ago very slow & now very old. I find that if I purchase my own then I have a choice about the type of device that I want to use!

we don't have to run to the NHS for everything!!!

Why not. Your quite a lot of your taxes go to the NHS. Put it this way. They save money by getting you to check your own readings. In the long run, if you properly monitor your own levels, it'll save the NHS a lot of money in the long run. So it's a win win situation for all.

blood sugar monitors are usually given away free to the diabetes clinics so no problem getting a replacement one for free any time you need one, the manufactures make the money from the testing strips and not the monitors.

I've been given in the last few years 2 One Touch Ultrasmart meters, the DSNs were given to dish out.
I'd ask at your local clinic before spending your cash on one.

Even if you do buy one, then there are any amount cheaper eg.

I am not diabetic, but have Reactive Hypoglycaemia where I produce too much insulin in certain circumstances (eating carbs!), so use one occasionally, so I can be certain it is hypoglycaemia and not a similar effect I get producing too much Cortisol!

I suppose the software might be handy, but the memory on most new machines is quite large.
those with old machines might be surprised how little blood some of he newer test strips use - at hospital recently I thought I was going to be bled to death by the phlebotomist who was checking my blood glucose with a small meter before taking a full sample! My own meter needs TINY samples by comparison.
