Comments

I was fortunate to have been able to acquire this very unit in early 1985. After living with juvenile diabetes for more than twelve poorly managed years, I was finally able to properly monitor glucose levels and adjust insulin doses. I will soon reach the mark of 50 healthy years with JD. That meter and the others I used after it made my survival possible.
