This mailing list keeps you up-to-date with new articles, columns, and Web pages that I have written. I list and link most of these on my Diabetes Directory at www.mendosa.com/diabetes.htm.
From time to time Diabetes Update may also include links to other Web pages of special interest.
MediSense launched its Sof-Tact blood glucose meter today.
I will be writing about it and other painless alternative site meters (the FreeStyle and the Ultra) for Diabetes Wellness Letter. A MediSense rep provided me with an advance copy last week.
I would like to interview people who have used the meter and whom I can contact before my deadline (April 12).
The meter has many advantages, but is not cheap. It goes for $199.95 and the strips are $49.95 for 50.
Right now it is available only by calling a toll-free MediSense number, (866) 763-8228.
You can read a very good preliminary review of the meter at the Diabetes123.com site at http://www.diabetes123.com/aade2000/.
Please write me if you are able to obtain a Sof-Tact in the next few days, particularly if you also are familiar with the FreeStyle and the Ultra.
I send out Diabetes Update email in HTML format, which all Web browsers and most modern email programs can display. HTML has live links to all the sites named in the text so that with a simple click of a mouse you can connect to the site you have just been reading about.
