I've been using the OneTouch UltraMini for 4-5 years now. I don't really know how accurate it is as I've never used any other type for comparison!
Even with the 'good' meters I've found there can be variance between two tests taken in a row.
I have the FreeStyle Freedom Lite as my main meter. That is the one insurance buys strips for. However I also have the ReliOn Ultima. This is one of the Walmart meter with low cost strips. I keep this one in my purse and use it if I'm not at home. It has also come in handy when I've run out of strips for my main meter before insurance would cover more. It was less expensive to get the ReliOn and its strips than to purchase FreeStyle strips out of pocket. The ReliOn numbers do not seem too different from my Freedom Lite.
I have the True Balance meter because it was the one given to me free by my doctor when I got diagnosed along with a few months worth of strips. I need to start shopping around for strips now because the freebies are just about out. Does anyone know about Medicare and testing supplies? I am new to Medicare too.
