I’m going back on glucophage to manage polycystic ovarian syndrome. I’ve been on it in the past with good results.
Now, though, possible interactions with other medications mean that I’ll have to monitor my glucose levels.
Having never done that, I looked at monitors. I’m somewhat bewildered by the variety of them, so I’m asking y’all for input.
If you or an immediate family member/close friend uses a glucose monitor, tell me about your experiences. What should I avoid? What features are important?
I want it to be as simple and fast as possible to do this, so I don’t end up procrastinating or being annoyed because it takes too much time.
Edit: A couple of years ago, twochicsinbham had a monitor that was really easy to use. It popped the used lancets into a little cartridge for safe disposal — you didn’t ever have to handle them. I wish I knew what that one was!
