Many people have satisfactorily used this product, such as Amazon user B. Barrett who “thought it would be difficult to use, but it was simple. It clearly showed whether there was an error, showed the levels in large numbers and worked well. It even provided a booklet with general info on blood sugar, usual ranges before and after meals, and places to record the data. It would be great for someone just diagnosed with diabetes or for someone like me, just looking to keep an eye on your levels. One of the great things is that the monitor and the container of strips can be attached to each other which seems good for consistent use, but there is also a little wallet-like case for all of the parts to go into. Great to fit into a purse and not have to worry about losing anything.”
Conversely, another user said that “several times I compared it to two TrueTrack meters I've been using. The True2Go meter read 30 to 40 percent lower each time, while the other two meters (code required) were within a few points of each other.” Even though this user claims that “blood glucose results were off enough to be scary,” they even admit that it is a “great concept, nice product.” For what it’s worth, Discount Medical Supplies has TrueTrack medical supplies online available as well.
