RE: [IP] Glucometer Elite vs Dex meters



I've been using the Dex for about 2 years now and get it checked regularly
with blood drawn for the lab.  It has always been accurate within 1pt or so.
That's 18/mgdl in US measurements.  I am very satisfied with it but am
surprised to hear how many people think it is a bad machine.
