My new Ultralink arrived on Monday. Yay! It was a bit of a surprise, because I didn’t get my usual “we shipped something” email, like everything else from Medtronic. I’m going to play with it a couple of more days before I write my review. Overall, I like it!
Yay! I just got a letter yesterday from Medtronic Minimed. They have finished mailing the One Touch Ultralink meter to the owners of 722/522 and now have started sending them out to those who own the 512/712/515 and 715 model. (The letter said that people with those models should be getting the Ultralink FREE by August 30, 2008.)
I am so happy! I really liked the way the BD link meter worked, but I didn’t like the cost of the strips. (It was covered by my insurance, but with a much higher copay than the Ultra strips. Since I test around 8-10 times a day, it can make a HUGE difference. )
I’ll put a review here once I get it.
