Re: [IP] Alcohol question

Wasn't going to respond, but figured what the heck! Amy does not routinely use
alcohol to swab her fingers before pricking, but does if we are away from a
place to wash - and yes, it has made a difference in her readings. If she had
'junk' on her hands, it will affect and give her false highs. She will wipe
with a swab and retest, and be just fine.
