In the past several years, blood glucose meter makers have released new products that require smaller sample sizes, permit alternate site testing, take less time to produce readings, and have sophisticated memories and analysis capabilities built in. If you're using a meter that is more than a year old, you may wish to ask your diabetes team about the many new meters that have been released recently to see if one might offer features that would better meet your needs.
