Excellent choice! I started with an accu check and didn't like it at all switched to a One Touch... Very happy! It needs a smaller sample than I was used to and is really easy to use! Good luck and God bless

I tried an Accu-check and found the readings to be way off the meter that I had been using. I have heard good things about One-Touch. My insurance company will only allow us to use Lifestyle meters. They are not consistently accurate at all. Isn't it nice to have to run your life by what the insurance company decides is best for you based on what companies they can make deals with to save them money?
Thanks for all the good info - based on your input and tutorials I watched online, One Touch it will be.
I have used both Accu-Check and OneTouch Meters. I would say that your best bet is the OneTouch UltraSmart or the One Touch Ultra2, I have both. I can see the Ultra2 better than the UltraSmart. I use the UltraSmart because it gives more information than the Ultra2. You can use the same test strips with these two meters. There are several Accu-Check models and they use different test strips.
I just want to throw in my 2 cents. Our vet suggested we get a Rely On meter at Walmart for our dog who recently got diagnosed with diabetes. My dh has various One touch and Accu check meters. He ran out of strips and decided to try the dogs meter and loved it. The strips are like $35 for 100 with no insurance, can't remember how much dh pays for his strips through insurance with the One touch. I really like this little meter though, accurate and quick and cheap, can't beat that.
