Question about meters
Posted Saturday, January 15, 2011 at 11:35 AM
My glucose levels have risen lately, with no changes in diet or exercises. This morning, I am smelling a rat. My best friend (my meter) may have betrayed me. Using FreeStyle Freedom Lite most of the time, and since I started on a new batch of test strips, the readings have gone up.
I have an alternate meter - OneTouch UltraMini, so I am checking the two against each other. They diverge by 10 or more points, in the tests I've run last evening and today.
What would you do? I am willing to purchase a 3rd meter, if anyone recommends something more reliable.
Frankly, I was ready to dump vegan eating in disgust, but it worked so well for me until recently. Tossing baby out with the bath water is not the way to go.
