Dear Dr @Ajeet Singh , Regarding glucometer I would like to request you that you should choose a meter which is user friendly, have longer self life of strips, easy to get the strips, strips should have different pack sizes (10s, 25s, 50s & 100s). Most strips have a expiry of 90-180days after 1st opening of vial, which 99% of people overlooked & get erroneous readings blaming as the meter is defective. The glucometer should have a wide working temperature range considering the Indian climatic condition (hot & humid), so better to use & store it in a AC room. Meter should carry a "Free replacement warranty". I would suggest you to use Accuchek Activ for all the above reasons. Now let's discuss about the BP monitor. It is better to have a good quality mercurial sphygmomanometer along with appropriate cuff size which varies from patient to patient as per the girth & length of the arm, but one should follow the instructions of use & maintenance (which most users never follow). Ease of use is with digital BP monitors but still same rules apply. I would suggest to have a digital BP monitor of Citizen cuff model (not wrist model). One should use alkaline batteries for better performance.
Any comments on the above suggestions are welcome. Dr @Sepuri Krishna Mohan , @Dr. Dineshchandra Sharma , @Dr. Jagadish Behera , Dr@Sabista Naaz , Dr @Vilas Deshpande , @Dr. Pradip K Khuntia
