Re: [IP] OneTouch Verio IQ meter recalled

My mother once hit 1300 and my dad hit the roof.  She was in a nursing 
home in Florida that apparently had never had a T1 as a patient.  Their 
instructions were written with T2's in mind:  no insulin if the 
patient's BG is normal.

So after they didn't give her any NPH insulin, that's what her BG was by 
the time that she was moved by ambulance 40 miles into a hospital in 
Tampa.  Of course, that result was done by the lab, not a meter.
