Re: [IP] testing for sugar content



.............................................................................
I just tried testing diet coke and regular sprite on my one touch ultra..
the diet coke reading was 39 and the sprite reading was HI.

I also tried putting the soda on the back of the test strip, as someone else
had suggested.. but it didn't turn purple, it just stayed the same.

I usually used the urine test strips.. but this is nice to know too.

  And the Ultra won't test it, you get an error if you try to test anything
  but blood.
