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

Type 1 cartoonist illustrates what things drive us NUTS about diabetes
It’s Friday and goodness knows anyone who struggles with diabetes just might benefit from a good laugh and escape from the quiet desperation of modern life with the condition. I think I have a perfect distraction.

Drinking two glasses of water before each meal may help people lose weight, a new study has found. Obese dieters who drank two glasses before breakfast, lunch, and dinner lost five pounds more than their dieting peers over the course of three months. Experts say it could be that the water helps fill people up more quickly, thus ensuring they eat less.
