All of us who have diabetes need some devices to help us manage. But each of us need different devices.
Every one of us needs a blood glucose meter. Some of us need continuous glucose monitors, insulin pens, and insulin pumps. But depending on our individual differences we need different makes and models of these devices.
We are lucky to have a wide variety of devices to choose from. About 40 companies offer us about 100 different blood glucose meters. These meters are more and more sophisticated, but the shear number of choices we have can be daunting while still being a good thing for our individuality.
