I’ve had this meter since last June; I have played around with it off and on –
It would be my meter of choice if I were on multiple daily injections (MDI).
However as a person who uses an insulin pump this meter’s functionalities are lost in the mix.
The InsuLinx calculates insulin-to-carbohydrate ratios, correction factors, and active insulin / insulin on board. Basically it has pump-like intelligence built into it.
Although its screen is black and white it looks like a smartphone and eliminate the need to carry a separate calculator, or the need for pulling out a second device (smartphone) to use as a calculator.
Some of its other features include a touch screen interface, automated logbook, personalization preferences, and USB connectivity for plug-and-play reports compatible with both Mac and PC operating systems.
Disclosure – I was not asked to photograph or review this meter, I picked it up at my local London Drug Store back in June. Abbott does not know I even exist I do this because I love photographing the tools that we use in managing diabetes and because I love new shiny gadgets.
