What is the easiest and best diabetes monitoring kit ?
My friend has type 2 diabetes and only tests himself when he feels bad. He goes to his parents house and borrows his mom s kit. I want to buy him one that he can carry with him and is easy to use;doesn t need alot of maintainance.
I use Accu-check Active meter. It allows you to use samples from your arm as well as fingertips, and strips are medium-low in cost. It's very easy to use, takes only seconds, and is very small and portable. Can you imagine, the whole case it comes in is just a little bigger than a checkbook. Simple isnt it?

What kit would you suggest for someone who has just been diagnosed diabetic? Sugar levels have affected his eyesight and laser surgery is being performed tomorrow. Also, we are in Manitoba (Canada). Is there a charge for these systems OR are they provided free of charge to seniors? Thank you.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
My husband has a uniformed rash on his back. No raised welts or pimples. He says there's no itching or burning but I'm afraid it may have something to do with his pancreatitis which he was diagnosed with 4 years ago. His doctor said he has a neucrotic pancreas.
My husband was diagnosed with Duodentitis and Pancreatitis. He has gotton better from the pancreatitis but still is suffering from Duodentitis. How long will it last? He is taking an antibiotic for it but that's all. What can he do to help with the pain?
