What’s New LifeScan, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, has introduced its OneTouch Ultra2 Blood Glucose Monitoring System. LifeScan says the new meter is designed to help diabetics see the impact of their food and portion choices on their blood glucose levels.
According to LifeScan, the OneTouch Ultra2 System offers tools such as the ability to flag and identify a specific blood glucose result as coming from a “before-meal” or “after-meal” test; an easy-to-use display of before- and after-meal blood glucose averages (for the past 7-, 14- and 30-day periods) to help users spot meal-related trends; and a feature enabling users to tag specific results with preset comments that can provide later insight, such as what may have caused an after-meal blood glucose result to be too high.
The OneTouch Ultra2 System is available in pharmacies across the country and uses OneTouch Ultra Test Strips. LifeScan says it is expected to cost approximately $65 to $70 retail. The system and test strips are also covered by Medicare Part B and most insurance plans.
