Everyone with diabetes should have a sick-day plan and toolkit; an essential item for your toolkit is a thermometer. Checking your temperature when you don’t feel well can help determine if you possibly have an infection. But which thermometer is the best? No doubt you have an old thermometer hanging out in the back of your medicine cabinet. It’s time to step it up with the iProven Ear & Forehead Thermometer. This is a temporal forehead thermometer that’s perfect for the entire family. It provides a fast, accurate reading in just three seconds. All it takes is a quick swipe across the forehead.

Thanks to extensive clinical testing, the iProven Ear & Forehead thermometer gives you consistent results, time and time again. Make sure this thermometer is in your medicine cabinet.
