If you know me at all, you know that tech devices are my thing. If something new comes out, I want it and usually wind up getting it. And diabetes devices are no different. I’ve used almost every insulin pump that has been on the market the past 10+ years. I’ve used each CGM system with the exception of the very first version of Dexcom, the Medtronic Enlite and the Abbott Navigator. There aren’t many glucose meters that I haven’t tried at one point or another.
When it comes to glucose meters, there are 2 features that I think are the most important – accuracy and cost. I’ve posted a few times about accuracy, or lack thereof. I also see so many posts on social media from people who can’t afford their insurance’s preferred test strips or they don’t have coverage for test strips at all. That can leave people with the only option of using cheap meters and strips. And we all know that cheaper is not always better. Or even good. That’s why something like the mySugr bundle is not only affordable but convenient also! Why? Because it provides you with an accurate glucose meter with reliable results (the Accu-chek Guide meter), test strips delivered to your door, all your readings via Bluetooth to a phone app PLUS a personal coach whenever you need advice. All for $39.99 a month. I don’t know about you, but that’s less than what I normally pay just for test strips.

I would love to make diabetes suck less. My insurance carrier mid year dropped all meters/test strip except for one brand. I have had previous experience with that brand and was constantly chasing highs and lows because the meter/test strips returned inaccurate results. As soon as I was able to get back on an “accurate” meter/test strip program my BG readings stablized in just 24 hours.

I would like to make diabetes suck less by balancing doing what I can to help my son manage his type 1 diabetes and allowing him autonomy to succeed on his own.
