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.
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.
Insulin therapy is all about balance and fine-tuning. It’s normal to experience a challenge or two, especially when you begin the regimen.
The meta-analysis included data from eight observational cohort studies and 11 randomized controlled trials that involved diabetes and measuring vitamin D. The investigators, who were from Tufts Medical Center and Carney Hospital in Massachusetts, found that overall, individuals who consumed more than 500 International Units (IUs) per day of vitamin D had a 13 percent reduced risk of type 2 diabetes when compared with those who consumed less than 200 IU per day.
