What is a Nerdy Glucose Meter?

A nerdy glucose meter must allow for "alternate testing locations". This means no finger pricks. Nerds need their finger tips pain free to keyboard and swipe.

A nerdy meter must allow for data transfer to a computer or website for in-depth analysis and review. How a meter connects to a computer is also important.

The last part is optional based on the prior features, but it is really nice when a meter can record data other than date and time of a glucose reading.

Testing Procedures:

All meters are tested with at least 25 test strips, most many more. All meters are tested by a diabetic in the daily routine of their normal testing regiment.

Judging Criteria
  • Reliability
  • Data exporting
  • Alternative Testing Sites
  • Data storage other than BG
  • Memory
  • Custom Programming
  • Internal Controls
  • Battery Life
