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
bad situations (though not frequent) to suggest people use a different meter.
This is apparently a known problem.
