Bayer has announced that it is discontinuing its A1c Now Self Check at home monitor. My doctor's office even uses one. Does anyone know why? Some find that is does not compare favorably with lab test, but I have alway found it very close.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

I just received information that Bayer discontinued the A1c Now self check kits "because it was not making enough money from it. The good news is that another company bought it and will be up and running by April."
