From Indiana, USA:

I am a female diabetic age 35 who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 14. My question has to do with testing equipment. What are the new glucose monitors and which is most accurate? There are too many to choose from.


All of the meters are accurate when used properly. There are different meters for different folks with a variety of options available. I would suggest you contact a diabetes educator who can show you a variety and let you try them to see which is best suited for you.
