Diabetes Care Club Complaint - Giving the wrong impression
I am upset that this company is claiming to have a product that is outstanding and unique, when this product and many like it, have been around for years. I have been diabetic for 45 years and had my share of meters. Alternate sites, if they looked it up, are not as accurate as finger pricks also. I have been a medical lab technologist all of my adult life and we always use fingersticks for blood sugars if not obtaining a venous sample. My fiance was watching the TV and saw the ad for the club. He told me there is a meter out that you don't need to code or stick yourself. Evidently, that is what the company is trying to portray so people will order it. I had to break his heart and tell him that I still have to do my fingersticks as their advertising is giving the wrong impression. Diabetics are always on the lookout for a new or more modern method of doing things to make life easier.
It is stressful enough being on insulin and testing ten times a day in some cases, that false advertising can aggravate us more. Maybe they should call me on how to advertise for their glucose meters as I won't lead anyone down the wrong path.
