More than three million Canadians are living with diabetesand many of them require insulin to manage their condition. For those who use insulin, managing diabetes can often involve challenging calculations to determine an appropriate mealtime insulin dose. In a diabetes survey conducted in October 2011 by Leger Marketing, 200 Canadian healthcare professionals — including general practitioners, diabetes nurse educators and endocrinologists — stated that, in their respective clinics, four in ten mealtime insulin-using patients had difficulty calculating a mealtime insulin dose. Virtually all health care professionals (HCPs) surveyed (97%) believe that a patient’s inability to manage insulin therapy limits the intensity and complexity of the therapy that an HCP can prescribe or recommend.

One Touch Ping: use gold strips ,

The OneTouch® Ultra is a small, easy to use and very fast meter, producing results in five seconds. The OneTouch Ultra uses FastDraw™ Design test strips, a new capillary action, end-fill test strip that takes only 1 microliter of blood, is touchable, and is approved for alternative sites (e.g., the arm instead of the finger tip). Combining small blood volume, small size (3.12″ x 2.25″ x .85″, 1.5 ounces with battery) and the short, 5-second test time, the OneTouch Ultra is recommended, though the newer OneTouch Ultra2 and UltraMini are better choices (especially the new UltraMini, now that it has a data port).



The InDuo is the world’s first combined blood glucose meter and insulin dosing device.
