Mr. Divabetic’s Favorite Things #3: Blood Sugars with Bells

Divabetic: Mr. Divabetic's Favorite Things 2011

This item on Mr. Divabetic’s Favorite Things list was discovered while on Divabetic’s recent Golden Girls outreach tour. We outreached to thousands of seniors living with diabetes and learned that many are vision impaired which can make checking blood sugars very challenging. Next year, our Golden Girls outreach tour continues with tour stops in  Belle Glade, FL, Washington, DC and Los Angeles, CA. For more event details go to: divabetic.org

One of the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach, Judi Wilcox, from Hollywood, FL recommends the Prodigy Glucose Meter for seniors or anyone who has  vision issues. Its the only talking meter with a repeat button for the last message spoken, an external headphone port, audible memory and setup menus, and a customer service staff trained especially to assist blind and low vision customers. It provides the blind access to all blood-glucose-monitoring features available to fully sighted consumers.They need spoken access to all meter operations to ensure independent use—access is truly golden. Average price is: $85.00. For more information: prodigymeter.com
