Our Favorite Things

Lancing Devices

This is the only lancing device that we have ever used!  We have tried others and none have measured up to this one!  We love the drum containing 6 lancets so you don't have to change all the time AND the fact that it is completely contained so there are no accidental pricks!  

Ketone Testers

If you do not have ketone tester that tests blood (instead of urine) RUN - do not walk - to your local pharmacy to get one!  I'm not even kidding!  You don't need it often... but when you do... it's a blessing.  First, getting a toddler in diapers to pee on a stick is impossible and putting cotton balls in diapers and squeezing them out is gross.  PLUS - the blood tester is more accurate.  Ketones clear the body through the urine LAST.  So the urine test could read that you still have ketones when they are clear from your blood.  I love that it gives you a NUMBER.  There is no guessing what color it is.  You get an exact number.  The strips are more expensive... true.  BUT... we don't use them that often.  And it sure is nice to have when we do need it.
