Sugar Magic. In today’s episode I’ll review Nipro’s
TrueResult Twist blood glucose meter. The Twist is the world’s smallest meter
according to Nipro. It’s a very basic meter, and is best
suited as a companion meter especially to its bigger brother, the True Result
and I’ll explain what I mean by companion meter more in the pro section. So here are the pros: TrueResult Twist Pros No coding is required. Basically the meter is ready to
go. All you have to do, is insert the test strip and perform a blood test. A small blood sample of 0.5 microliters is required. This is half the amount required with True Track so it’s a good choice for those who do not bleed well. Features include, a memory with 99 results. It has a result time of 4
seconds which makes it one of the quickest meters on the market. This time
is less than half of that for True Track and True Balance, and it’s ideal for
someone who wants quick results. It’s very simple to use. There’s one button to turn the meter on and to scroll through the readings in the memory and the other
button ejects the test strip. It’s very compact in size. According to Nipro, it’s the world’s smallest meter and it’s about one-sixth of the size of an iPhone 4. The lancing device is also quite small. So together with a lancing device
in its case, it fits nicely into the trouser pocket or the handbag. It would suit someone on the go who needs to test their blood glucose level several times
each day, including perhaps at work or at school. It has a good range of detection
between 1.1 and 33.3 millimoles per litre. It’s an ideal companion meter to
your main meter. You may already have a full-sized meter which you use to test
regularly at home. This is your main meter. However, you may want a more
compact meter to just test your blood glucose, for example, at work at
school or when exercising. And for these times you can use a smaller companion meter like the Twist. A good combination is a Twist with a True Result because they
use the same test strips and it’s economical because there’s no need to buy another bottle of test strips. TrueResult Twist Cons Now for the cons. The test strips have a 120 day expiry from the date they are first opened. If you test at least once a
day then it’s not going to matter because you’ll use up all the test
strips before they expire however if you test less frequently then
you may have test strips that you need to discard. It has very limited functions.
It basically tests your blood glucose and records it in the memory. The small size may not suit all. Some people with arthritis of the hands or gripping
issues may find it a bit small to hold comfortably. The screen is quite small.
It’s about a quarter of the screen of the True Track so people with limited
eyesight may find the numbers a bit difficult to read. The buttons may be a bit small for people with limited eyesight or use of their hands. The results cannot be transferred onto a computer. TrueResult Twist Pete’s Summary In summary, the Twist is a very good
companion meter for your main meter especially if you already use the True
Result. It is suitable for someone who: is on the go and wants a compact meter
just to test their blood glucose, wants fast results has difficulty getting a blood
sample wants a simple-to-use meter with minimal features, wants a meter that does not require coding, does not need to transfer the results onto a computer, does not have limited eyesight or grip, test at least once every 2 days to get
the best value out of the test strips, already uses a TrueResult meter
because they use the same test strips. If you’d like more information, have a look
