We just started using the OneTouch Ultra meter now that Medtronics has swapped it out instead of the BD/Nova meter. We ordered like a 3 month supply of strips and now that we have started using it - HATE IT!!! Is it just us?? We find it requires WAY more blood then the BD did. So far half the time we don't get enough blood and then have to restick Ross. Like getting stuck 10 times a day isn't enough that we need to restick him for redo's. Any one having similar problems? Any suggestions? We will stick it out until the strips run out (which at this pace will be fast!)and then probably go back to the Nova meter which we were perfectly content with.
