We have been using the One Touch Ultra for years. Seems to work fine but we never really did a comprehensive test ourself so maybe we are just living in blissful ignorance? Or maybe the meter/strips really work well for us?
In any event, I am trying to work with a distributor and insurance and doctor to switch over to the Contour Next series. The various website reviews and the experiences of people on this forum and another forum have been overwhelmingly positive with the Contour Next so it just seems a reasonable course of action.
Exactly what do you mean by “same drop of blood just keep squeezing” because that sounds to me like it was the same fingerstick with multiple drops of blood. First drop, first meter, squeeze again on the same fingerstick, more blood, next meter, squeeze again, more blood, next meter.
With the same meter, I do not get the same results on the first drop and the second drop from a given fingerstick.
If you really want to put these things through the wringer, I would suggest more tests. Mix things up. Record everything in terms of what/when/whatever so you can go back and review.
Do the same test in reverse order.
Do another test with each single meter but doing three tests with that particular meter from the one fingerstick.
Test each meter again a different finger.
Run your own suite and see what you get. Do you consistently see one meter running higher than another? Does one meter seem to have more fluctuations than another meter?
