OneTouch Ultra is a blood glucose monitoring device for people with diabetes and is the foundation product for LifeScan's OneTouch Ultra Family of blood glucose monitoring systems. OneTouch Ultra Blood Glucose Meters provide blood glucose test results in 5 seconds, offer alternative test site options, and various memory and flagging features. The results are displayed as plasma values. OneTouch Meters are sold in kits containing a carry case, a lancing device, control solution, sample quantities of lancets, and a replacement cap for use with the sampling device when using alternative site testing. The OneTouch Ultra 2 is similar in design and operation to the OneTouch Ultra Meter, but also offers Before and After Meal Flags, Comments, and a list style memory recall. This meter also provides 7 day, 14 day, and 30-day averages, with the option of averaging Before meal or After Meal records. Other OneTouch Ultra Meters include the OneTouch UltraSmart and the OneTouch UltraMini Meter (known as the OneTouch UltraEasy in Europe). In addition to the original Silver Moon color, LifeScan introduced three additional colors of the OneTouch UltraMini Meter in summer 2007: Pink Glow, Limelight, and Jet Black. OneTouch Meters with data ports can be used in combination with the downloadable OneTouch Diabetes Management Software and a PC to compute averages and trends. The software is available from LifeScan's Web site but an interface cable must be purchased.
|Information||A glucose meter (or glucometer) is a medical device for determining the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. It can also be a strip of glucose paper dipped into a substance and measured to the glucose chart. It is a key element of home blood glucose monitoring (HBGM) by people with diabetes mellitus or hypoglycemia. A small drop of blood, obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet, is placed on a disposable test strip that the meter reads and uses to calculate the blood glucose level. The meter then displays the level in units of mg/dl or mmol/l. Since approximately 1980, a primary goal of the management of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus has been achieving closer-to-normal levels of glucose in the blood for as much of the time as possible, guided by HBGM several times a day. The benefits include a reduction in the occurrence rate and severity of long-term complications from hyperglycemia as well as a reduction in the short-term, potentially life-threatening complications of hypoglycemia.OneTouch Ultra is a glucose meter produced by LifeScan/Johnson & Johnson. The meter provides results in five seconds, and allows alternate site testing in the forearm or palm.Most caregivers who test their pets’ blood glucose levels use human glucometers. These two documents  compare the features of various glucometers and link to the Internet sites for the manufacturers. Ease of use ratings  and more specifics can be found at the link below for all major US brands. Some brands of glucometers have a switch or set-up option, allowing the user to perform testing using either mmol/L (millimoles/liter-world standard measuring unit) or mg/dL (milligrams/deciliter-traditional measuring unit) measurements.  Making sure your meter is set to measure blood glucose in the common form for your country can avoid possible misinterpretation of readings.  See glucometer units of measure for a list of various countries and the standards used in them|
