    Blood glucose

    One thing I seem to be missing in my personal car first aid bag is a blood glucose machine.

    Have a few friends and neighbours that are diabetic so there is some logic in here. Wondering those of you that use them regularly have any brands you would recommend?

    Brought in a couple of oxygen stat's finger machines, cheapest and easiest was Alabama by a long shot

    Problem with them is the strips, use before dates are stupidly short.

    Would be happier buying a new one with new strips and accepting, u are going to run out rather than getting new ones, (always get the wrong model / make / size strips)

    Accu-chek are the best on the market... expiry dates seem to be a non issue particularly on the units I currently have, and on the last ones, Get the Accu-Chek Performa if you can...
