Pros and Cons of Ascensia Breeze Glucose Monitor
**Simple to use because you don't have to change the strips everytime you want to test your blood sugar
**Simple to use lancet device.
**With a pull forward and push back method to release the strip it is an easy way to release the strip.
**Only needs a tiny drop of blood.
**If you want to do alternative testing, you have to call Bayer and they will send you a special lancing device so you can use alternative testing. You do have to pay like a $4.95 S&H fee. Or they include a $25 coupon you can take to your pharmcacy to get the special lancing device. And that's if the pharmacy has it available.
** That means once you have your blood glucose machine, you can't start testing on alternative sites until you have the special lancing device.
**To open the machine at the top can be confusing initially and a little difficult if you have arthritis. Though most patients do get the hang of it after a few times.
**The pull and push back method to release the strip again may have some arthritis patients having some difficulty but most patients are able to do this in a few tries.
Overall, this is a great glucomenter. If it weren't that you have to call Bayer to get the special lancing device, I would rate this machine a 9. But because of this factor, again, like the Accucheck Compact, this glucometer would be rated an 8.
Either machine, the Accucheck Compack and the Ascencia Breeze both are high tech glucose meter that really do help the diabetes perform simpler blood sugar results and feel both of these are the best glucometers on the market now.
Here is the pdf for the instruction for the Ascensia Breeze. By the way, Bayer makes the Ascensia Breeze. Definitely shocked me when I started using this glucose machine on my patients.
