EXTRA, EXTRA!

MyStarExtra is the latest blood glucose monitoring device developed by Sanofi and

is the first self-monitoring device that provides estimates of the HbA1c value, a

key indicator for long-term glucose control. Until now, HbA1c levels were obtained

through a laboratory test, which patients receive on average once or twice a year. The

MyStar Extra meter uses unique algorithms to provide estimates of HbA1c. While

this does not replace the laboratory test, it provides more immediate feedback on

therapy progress. Therefore this monitoring device may help you better understand

the meaning of your test results in the context of overall treatment goals. Several

extra features of the device may help people with diabetes stay motivated and

engaged in managing their insulin therapy. www.sanofi.co.uk

MINI ME

The new sleek and slim Nexus Mini from

the GlucoRX range of meters does not

require coding, needs only a 0.5µL spot of

blood to test from and takes 5 seconds to

count down. Strip ejection avoids blood

contact. On board as well as giving your

blood test result, there is a ketone warning

and you can set alarms to remind yourself

to test. The memory holds 1000 readings

and generates day averages. You can

download data onto a PC. Available in

black or white. www.glucorx.net

In another addition to the range, the speaking Blood Glucose Machine that features

all the above but with a large screen and spoken test results, with a memory capacity

of 450 readings. The meter displays a clock and calendar when in standby mode.

The mini meter retails at about £6, the voice-enabled meter at around £10. They use

GlucoRX test strips which are £12 for a tub of 50 sensors. www.glucorx.net
