    As much as I love the Aviva....I love the Ultralink for data gathering. It really is nice to have each reading sent straight to the pump, one less step to worry about.

    I use the One Touch Ultra..link i think? It goes to my pump. Before I got my pump about a month and a half ago, though, i used Accucheck Aviva which I totally loved.

    I use the accuchek aviva, for its consistancy, and blood sample size, and my insurance coverage. The accuchek nano uses more blood!

    LOL I'm pretty sure I posted in this thread about how we love our Aviva and now we are getting ready to switch to One Touch Ultra 2 again! I have rediscovered how it will let you flag BG readings with so many options, the Ping DS is going to get takes OT strips and I've found the "new" blue strips suck blood up as good as the Aviva strips.

    I test my BG from my omnipod PDM (remote). its really convienent because i dont have do carry around extra things, and also because i dont have to program my BG into my insulin pump when i need to correct.

    What is BG?

    I use Accu-Check Go. I guess we in Poland are behind the times. And that's really sad.

    BG is Blood Glucose, as in Blood sugar...BG is just the more appropriate abbreviation, if you get my drift :D :D.

    I use the ReliOn Confirm, it doesn't have the most features, but the strips are only $0.40 each, so I can't complain :)
