[IP] Testing Soda

> I assume that these strips are the standard One Touch strips?

Yes, the ones that go in the "standard" Profile meters, not the new 
one. Only the center of the strip gets used up when you do a blood 
test. If you flip it over, you can see that most of the white square 
is not stained by the blood. You put the drop of soda on the white 
square and it should stay fairly white. It may discolor a little as 
it bleeds into the original blood drop an picks up glucose from 
there. But.... if you put "real" soda containing sugar on the strip, 
it will turn deep purple right away.
