AST, Alternative Site Testing can be used with the Prodigy Voice glucometer.
They, like other manufacturers, list strong recommendations as to when to
use this system over finger pricks.  


Prodigy Voice states in there literature: "We strongly recommend you do AST
ONLY in the following intervals: 1. in a pre-meal or fasting state (more
than 2 hours since the last meal), 2. Two hours or more after taking insulin
and 3. Two hours or more after exercise.

Is there a talking glucometer that allows for using blood from a site other
than a finger stick - such as an arm?  A consumer told me he had heard of
such a device, but I do not know of one.
