EARLIER THIS WEEK IT WAS BLUE
BELL CREAMERY THAT ISSUED A
RECALL OR ITS PRODUCTS BECAUSE
OF A LISTERIA OUTBREAK.
TEO: IF YOU ARE AMONG THE 10% OF
AMERICANS WITH DIABETES, YOU
LIKELY USE A GLUCOSE METER TO
TRACK YOUR BLOOD SUGAR.
DEIRDRE: USE OF A
GLUCOSE METER
CAN KEEP YOU OUT OF THE
HOSPITAL.
LISA GONZALES HAS A LOOK AT THE
BEST ONES OUT THERE.
LISA: EXERCISE,
FOOD,
MEDICATION, AND STRESS ALL
AFFECT YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL.
CONSUMER REPORTS JUST TESTED 29
GLUCOSE METERS AND HERE ARE THE
BEST ONES ON THE MARKET.
DAVID CHECKS HIS BLOOD GLUCOSE
LEVEL SEVERAL TIMES A DAY.

LISA: THIS
TOP-RATED GLUCOSE
METER IS EASY TO USE, ACCURATE,
AND COST JUST UNDER $20, BUT THE
STRIPS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE,
TESTING FOR TIMES A DAY, IT
COSTS ABOUT $2400 A YEAR.
COMPARE THAT TO THIS $15 METER
FROM TARGET.
THE SAME NUMBER OF STRIPS COST

THAT IS ABOUT $2000 A YEAR LESS.
CONSUMER REPORTS FOUND IT WAS
VERY EASY TO USE AND ACCURATE.
ANOTHER ONE IS THIS $15 METER

ACCURATE.
AND THE ANNUAL COST OF THE
STRIPS WAS THE SAME, $525.
A REMINDER THAT GOOD HEALTH DOES
NOT HAVE TO COME AT A HIGH
PRICE.
LISA: CONSUMER REPORTS HAS
