I now as The one touch as the best one. I use it for myself and felt it is comfortable and handy. Moreover I heard any omne is good to measure the reading as it is not as specific as the lab one. why bother buy one and stick to it.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition?

Hi, my dad feels a pain in his stomach where his doctor told him he may have an annurism. He also has a heart murmur. He just tested his blood glucose and it is high, even though he has not eaten in about 4 hours. Is he in any immediate danger of the annurism because of his heart murmur and high glucose level?
