Talking Glucometer

A talking glucometer is a great advance in diabetes management, allowing a diabetic who has become visually impaired to be able to monitor and read their blood glucose readings. Accurate blood glucose readings are necessary to manage diabetes, as these readings as given by the talking glucometer allow the diabetic to know when it is necessary to inject insulin.

Talking Glucometer – Types

There are several types of a talking glucometer. All feature the same “speaker” version of blood glucose results, but the sizes and features may vary. Many of these talking glucometers are small and easily handled. These types of talking glucometer devices are designed for a diabetic who is visually impaired and cannot effectively see the glucometer display.

Talking Glucometer – Advantages

The key advantage of a talking glucometer is that someone who is visually impaired can still effectively and accurately monitor their blood glucose levels. Accurately measuring blood glucose levels is a key component to diabetes management, and a talking glucometer is a great tool for someone who is visually impaired and must monitor their blood glucose.

Talking Glucometer – Features

The features of a talking glucometer vary. There are several different brands of talking glucometers on the market, but the key feature is that there is a recording device that allows the talking glucometer to actually “speak” the results for the visually impaired person who cannot effectively read the results. When the person inserts the test strip with the blood sample into the talking glucometer, it takes several seconds to read and record the results and then says the results out loud.

Talking Glucometer – Suppliers

A talking glucometer can be obtained at a traditional pharmacy, as well as through online diabetic supply companies. Most online diabetic supply companies offer several different versions of a talking glucometer, and can do an insurance benefits analysis to see if you would qualify for a talking glucometer with no up front payment. Insurance can usually be billed directly for a talking glucometer.

Talking Glucometer – Conclusion

A talking glucometer is a fairly recent entry into the diabetic supply range of devices. One of the unfortunate side effects of diabetes can be the loss of vision, so a talking glucometer was developed as a way to assist those who have impaired vision in the task of measuring their blood glucose in order to manage the disease of diabetes. If you are visually impaired, please check with your diabetic supply company to inquire about the benefits of a talking glucometer.
