I’m new here, and I was hoping I could get some help.
I was diagnosed with type II in mid-June of 2019. I had to replace my first OneTouch Verio Flex in November of that year because the readings were off. I thought it was damaged from travel. Recently, the readings started seeming wrong again with the new one. I tested the strips with the control fluid and the reading was within range. I called the company and they issued me a voucher for a new one. Now the newest one is still giving me inaccurate readings. It’s giving me readings in the high 90s and low 100s when it should be at least in the 130s. If my readings were really that low, my fasting sugars wouldn’t have been 132 at my last test (I know…I’m working on it). I’m kind of at a loss and would appreciate advice.
I’m not sure if I can get another brand/model because I think this is the only one my insurance (Kaiser Permanente) covers.
