Meter is SUPER! Can't say enough good. Working with many diabetics, I have never had any complaints about this meter. THey love it. Easy to use, great sound. Patients trust this meter..!!!! Patients are even testing more frequently since it is easy to use and hear. They can't wait to show family and friends how cool it is. TRY IT... you will NOT be disappointed...

As an RN working with diabetics, I frequently help patients in getting this meter. It is by far the best. The patients love it and are very happy with all features of the meter. It is easy to use and speaks both Engish and Spanish. Blood sample size is small. CHOOSE this meter... you will not be disappointed! Great customer service too! Always helpful for any questions.....

This is the machine I use now. I have been through dozens of glucometers in the past year or two and this is the best one I have used. The machine turns itself on when the strip is inserted and the model I have speaks the results when they are available. The Advocate is also nice because it allows for alternate testing sites. This is great for those times that your fingertips need a break. The Advocate also has a 450 test memory so it is pretty easy to track our blood sugars. Overall this is a great machine that I would highly recommend.
