December 2010 newsletter kit: Viva la Vita

OneTouch VITA is a new blood glucose monitor from Lifescan. It can help users link the effects of food to their blood glucose level and is recommended for Type 2 diabetics on insulin. The monitor can analyze glucose levels from a very small drop of blood taken from a finger, forearm or palm clearly displaying the result, storing the reading in its memory for future use. It’s also pre-coded, which means no calibration codes or solutions are needed, adding to the convenience. It features MealMemory technology, which records 7, 14, and 30-day blood glucose averages.  It can help people with diabetes to see the impact that their diet has on their short, medium and long-term mean blood glucose levels showing how food choices affect their blood glucose levels. Increased awareness of this on the part of the patient should lead to greater control of their diabetes.  The VITA meter is available from the healthcare professional responsible for monitoring the person’s diabetes and its strips are available on prescription.
