Re: [IP] meter problems?



 I only use one touch meters. the are consistently within 4 or 5 points of the
lab results. When I was on MDI, I used a sliding scale and an Accu-Chek meter
and about killed myself several times. My new doc gave me the One Touch and I
haven't had any problems with them.

  My dr's office has warned me not to use the BD meter. They have heard of
enough
bad situations (though not frequent) to suggest people use a different meter.
This is apparently a known problem.
