Re: [IP] Re wrong sugar reading/cherry cheesecake?



It also can depend on the type of meter.
For a short period of time I was using one of those credit card shaped
meters when away from home.  The stick extends out of the side of the
machine and the sensor reads it from a distance.  If you set the machine
down on an uneven surface, or set it next to a dark or opaque object, it can
affect the sugars also.  I had a situation not unlike the girl mentioned
before and it scared me enough to always use my Profile.
