In the wake of a general diabetic panic (at least in our city the level of diabetes people up to 40 years has increased significantly), I also decided to purchase a blood glucose meter for myself and my family. Watching advertising on TV, went to a pharmacy for a branded device, prices were significantly higher than in the online store.
Chose an affordable and the number of positive reviews. Of course, I had to wait a bit, but as it turned out, the Chinese electronic gadget YIZHUN GA-3 SANNUO blood glucose meter is no worse than its other contemporaries, and the price is much cheaper.
I was looking forward to this popular gadget. I did not have to wait long. The box is cardboard, the device has come intact, neat, corresponds to the declared external characteristics. Small, light, very comfortable. The weight is only 200 grams, and the size is 160/112/50 mm with a good wide 100 pixel screen, the result will be visible even to older people. The body is made of hard plastic. Although the strength has not yet tested. As with any technique, the main thing is not to drop it and it will work for a long time. It was pleasantly pleased with the quality capacious zippered leatherette case, both for the device itself and for the necessary measuring accessories.
When ordering, the availability of official 3C certification became attractive.
Buy a gadget in 2017 with such quality is nice. Calibration is automatic, standard blood test time is 5.8 seconds. Stores up to 250 results in memory. The kit also includes 50 needles, 50 lancets, strips. The disadvantage was the instruction in Chinese, but if you already decided to buy a novelty gadget, be prepared for this. The user, who holds the device for measuring blood sugar in his hand for the first time, will need enough time to deal with it, step-by-step pictures will not be enough. I personally helped additional instructions on the Internet.
