I’ve been having some problems with my (brand new) Ping’s meter remote. I just got this meter remote along with my brand new Animas Ping about three weeks ago. Just wondering if any other Ping-users are having similar issues?
My meter will give me wildly erratic readings. For example, I will test, it says 57. I don’t feel low at all and my Dexcom says 250. I test again, and the meter now says 246. I expect semi-inaccurate results, but this is well outside of that +/- 20%, right? It doesn’t do it all the time, and I have had pretty accurate results in between these occasional crazy results.
I will do a test, then go to bolus using my meter and the meter will say “you have not tested in the last 15 minutes” even though I just tested 2 seconds ago. This actually happens a lot. Like once a day, or once every other day. Am I doing something wrong here?
I called the company, and went through all the normal shenanigans with them where they try to determine whether it’s actually your fault & not the meter, but they decided to send me a new meter anyway. Which, is probably a good thing.
Anybody else experience anything similar, or did I just get a wonky meter?
