I was reading Kerri’s blog post at sixuntilme yesterday (Dec 20) about how she just got a new Minimed 522 insulin pump. When you get the pump you also get a meter which sends your BG results wirelessly to the pump so you don’t have to enter them. Many people say that the meter that comes with the pump is no good. I thought I would compare the results between the two meters.
Which would you rather have? The One Touch ultra Mini said my BG was at 141—The BD meter said it was at 127. Obviously I would rather be at 127 but only if that number is accurate. At the same time if the 141 is not accurate then I could end up going low because my correction bolus was too much.
I am going to keep comparing them for a while but in the end I can’t wait until they come out with the new One Touch Ultra that will sync with Medtronic’s Minimed pump in early 2008!!
