  • I loved my one touch ultra mini. You can get it in different colors- I chose pink! It small and easily fits into a purse. Mine came in a little case that held my test strips, extra lancets, my record book the tester and a pen. It was easy to test with and I got quick, easy to read results. Didn't take much blood to test. And for me, testing wasn't painful unless I went to far down onto the pad of my finger. Good luck and I hope this info helps! Let me know if you have more questions about it!

  • my doc gave me FreeStyle Lite® Blood Glucose Monitoring System, my insurance covered that one. if you type in google free blood glucose monitors, you can get one for free, it comes in its case with test strips, i got my father in law one for free. it was one touch mini they let me choose the colors. gl.

  • Definitely the One Touch Mini or the Freestyle brands. They use such a small amount of blood. My daughter is a type one and we've been through a lot the Accucheck uses A LOT of blood.
