RE: [IP] meter problems?



Ted,

There is a control #, but the meter is programmed/set to correspond with the
bottle's control #, and the tests fell within the acceptable variation.
Though the rep couldn't explain why the variation between meters was outside
the acceptable control range.

I just spoke to my main Medtronic rep and they told me they're working on a
new meter with a different company... So I'm guessing others have had
similar problems with NovaMax...?

One thing I hope they improve: when the pump reminds me to check my sugars,
and I check my sugar, even thought the meter transmits the reading, I still
need to manually cancel the reminder. Seems to me it should recognize the
new meter reading and auto-cancel the reminder.

Brad
