RE: [IP] My Endo said.....
Laurie, I, like you, test extra if I go high. My endo questions why I
have a large ratio of "above 180's" on my machine. I tried explaining
that when I'm high I test every two hours or less until I'm in a normal
range. One member of our "Pump Club" suggested that I use a different
meter to check for the highs. Have you ever had this problem?
