Manufacturers of needles, insulin injector pens and blood glucose meters (for example) spare no effort to put tools on the market that constantly perform better, that make it easier to manage diabetes and everyday life for people living with this disease.
If you have to monitor your blood glucose rigorously, opt for a blood glucose meter that lets you download your results, like the Bayer Contour USB.
