Re: [IP] Freestyle Meter



We use the Freestyle meter for Emma and we love it.  We used to use Acucheck
and haven't seen much variation between the two.  The Freestyle seems to be
right on for us.  Why don't you try calling the company, maybe it's the
meter itself and they could send you a new one.  Good luck.
