Guess what we got in the mail today? Our FREE Nova Max blood glucose/ketone meter. I learned about this from Tracy on Facebook a few weeks ago. I loved the idea that it was a blood glucose meter AND a blood ketone meter all in one. Haven't got one yet? Get yours here: http://www.novacares.com/cwd/
Anyway, the best part is that it also came with 10 free test strips and 2 blood ketone strips. And if you read yesterday's post...we are scrimping and saving our test strips until our shipment from Medco arrives on Wednesday. (Yeah, I called first thing this morning to find out where it was!)
We used it tonight and I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison of the Nova Max and our One Touch strips. Here are the results (from the same blood drop):
I've never compared two meters before, so I don't know if this is a good comparison or not...but they're 30 points apart - not TOO bad, I guess. Now I wonder which one is really more accurate!
Either way, I'm grateful for 10 extra test strips to get us through the next few days! :)
