Re: [IP] Glucometer Dex Meter-Mini review

Ya Glenn, I've used it and still have it .  I recently retired it for 2
1. I didn't get a warm fuzzy feelin with it.  It seems to read too high and
lots of error readings.  I double checked everything all is normal.
Couldn't figure.......so
2. I got a Precision QID with my D pump and  ran parallel tests with it and
the dex (same blood Drop). The Precision unit gave a lower reading every
time.  So I've retired the DEX.  I feel more confident with this meter even
though it's a little more inconvenient to use.

Let me kno how u make out. OK?
