VerioIQ is billed as the first meter that searches for and alerts the user to high or low blood glucose patterns.
Testing my blood sugar is a task I have done faithfully, frequently, and yet without much enthusiasm every day for more than 20 years. It has been like brushing my teeth – I know it’s good for me, so I do it. I’m like a robot.
And that’s the problem: I check my blood sugar (at least six times a day), I make a decision in the moment (e.g. take insulin, or treat a low), and then I put the number out of my mind (it’s stored in the meter, right?).
Tsk, tsk, I imagine my diabetes nurse implying when I show up for a three-month appointment with my meter and only a vague guess as to what the data will show when we download them.
But I have good news: There is a new blood glucose meter from OneTouch that may change my reactive approach to monitoring. Called the VerioIQ, it’s billed as the first meter that searches for and alerts the user to high or low blood glucose patterns....
