"diabetes equipment"

About: Sheffield PCT

(as the patient),

I feel that being diabetic has enough issues to deal with without the change of equipment that a lot of type one patients have had to endure...My own problems have to do with the care sense N tester that I don't find reliable..This has resulted in my not being able to test my blood sugar level when the temperature is below 8deg.

I appreciate the need for cutting costs but feel that a blood tester like the breeze 2 (which I have been using without problems) should be available for use in a wider range of temperatures I believe my g.p. has switched due to cost saving and as far as I am aware has nothing to do with ease of use or reliability.
