The last thing I want to do on this website is to sell you things however if a product is good enough or bad enough to review then I believe I should do it. I have been monitoring my blood glucose levels several times a day (sometimes as much as 10 times per day) since I developed type 1 diabetes years ago. I have owned and tried many, many blood glucose monitors but without any shadow of a doubt, hands down my favourite one to date is the Accu Chek Nano or Accu-Chek Blood Glucose Monitoring System Nano.
Why I prefer the nano
I like it because it is convenient and compact meaning that you can carry it with you anywhere you go. Quite often I wear jeans and a shirt when I’m out and about. Previously i have had to carry a bag with me to carry by diabetes testing kit. Not so with the nano. It slips easily into my pocket. I carry a few testing strips in my back pocket and the lancer in my other side pocket and no one knows. It fits neatly in the palm of my hand and is a very discreet monitor. I have even heard some diabetics call it cute!
The main benefits apart from its size and storage ease is that it is very quick with its reading (approx 5 seconds) and I rarely have an issue with bad or incorrect data. The blood sample size required is tiny on the test strips and it requires no coding which means that you don’t have to use the test strips of the box that you are using, you can use any strip from any box at any time which is so much better than the old way.
The lancet is the best in class
The fast clix lancet takes the pain out of blood glucose testing. The device is a 1 click lancing device with a drum of 6 preloaded lancets. It has 11 depth settings for maximum comfort and minimal pain. It is proven to be least painful and overall is the easiest to use.
At a cheap price
The price for the Accu-chek nano is very competitive. You will get years of use out of it. I lost my previous one and did not hesitate to go out and buy the nano again. It also comes with some free tester strips, however you maybe best buying an extra box or two of strips when you purchase it. Forget your other monitors, or if you are using a different monitor already I recommend you keep it as a spare and buy the nano, it’s cheap and it works way more efficiently and way faster than any other products. It comes with my highest recommendation.
I also own a Accu-Chek mobile which I will review later. I keep that one at home as it is a larger unit and not convenient to carry around in your trousers but it is also a good model.
