As my wife has Type 2 diabetes I know the importance of tracking her blood glucose. My wife has tried various meters over the years, including one from Bayer that would connect to your computer via USB. Usually she falls back to one of the cheap standbys that our insurance will assist in paying for. Keeping track of your blood glucose over time gives you insight to how your treatment is working and also helps you make good choices at dinner time. DarioHealth has now made it simple for you to keep track of your blood glucose levels.
