Re: [IP] Glucometer Dex Meter-Mini review

Hey Leann, thats good to know.  I used the Elite for years never had a
problem.  The only reason I changed was so I could download  the results to
a computer.  I'll call Bayer tomorrow and get the lowdown on that new Elite.
The DEX is a blood gobbler.  I didn't know it had to be kept level, I was
told and found, by the way, That a 30 deg. angle was best. This seemed to be
so and also if the sharp end of the strip hits the blood first it seems to
suck it up better.  Don't ask me why.
I really think the problem is with the strip not the meter.
