A patient recently said he had seen a commercial for a talking diabetes meter, and wanted more information. I asked if he was having difficulty reading his blood glucose results. His answer was yes. After further discussion, I agreed that a talking meter may help but he needed to find one that matched his needs. Not all talking meters are the same.
What features are you looking for in a talking diabetes meter?
- Small sample size
- Turns on with the test strip
- Fully audible meter that talks through the entire process
- Provides previous audible test results and error messages
Talking meters are a good way to maintain your independence especially when you have limited vision.
