@d_q Hi! thanks for the response.

Prick tester I’m using is a Benecheck device, here’s a link to the supplier I bought it from in the UK: http://www.millermedicalsupplies.com/diagnostics/cholesterol-meters-strips/benecheck-meters-strips/benecheck-plus-multi-monitoring-system-with-carry-case-lancing-pen-and-lancets

It also does cholestrol and glucose but I’ve not tried those so cant really vouch for it being any good for those. As I said in previous post, personally I’ve compared 2 UA tests with the Lab and both matched to 2 decimal places (a little confusing as the NHS seem to use mmmol where as the tester is ummol but just a question of shifting the decimal place)

Exercise has been mainly the cross trainer, which I have at home. Quite a lot of walking (Sunday week I walked 17 miles!) and a bit of swimming too.

Hope that helps.
