RE: [IP] Precision Xtra

When I used Xtra I liked the individual wrapped strips but not waiting
for  45 second results.  Does it still take 45 seconds?

The new strips for the Xtra are made so that you don't put the blood
on the strip you touch the strip to the blood and the strip absorbs
the blood like most of the other strips for the other meters, perhaps
that may be where your problem lies.  You need to touch the end of the
strip to the blood and let it absorb the blood.  I've had no problems at
all with the Xtra since the VA switched over to them.  Make sure that 
the strips are in the blue foil and not the gold foil packs.
