The OneTouch Verio IQ and OneTouch Verio Pro from Lifescan have previously been on the market, and were designed for patients who want to be more proactive and autonomous with their diabetes management. The OneTouch Verio is a new device in the range designed especially for patients who feel overwhelmed by too much information or don’t want to put any extra work into testing. There is no need to scroll or push buttons, and 94% of patients in a study who used the meter for a week said results were simple to understand.
The meter features a colour-coded range indicator which provides simple instructions, motivational messages and progress updates. In the UK and Ireland, the meter is available free to insulin users from the OneTouch Customer Care team on 0800 279 4142 (UK) | 1800 535 676 (IRE). You can also talk to your diabetes clinic, your DSN or GP for more details. OneTouch Verio test strips are available on prescription. www.lifescan.co.uk
