I just downloaded the data from my pump for the 1st time to using the CareLink. I like all the graphs and stuff, but was wondering if there was a way to make a note next to a certain blood glucose reading?? I know in the journal entry you can enter carb grams and a description, but couldn’t figure out anything for the BG?
The reason I’m asking about the notes from the fingersticks is this: After lunch, I used my last strip in the vial and got a slightly high reading (131). Opened a new vial, changed the code on the meter (UltraLink) and tested again. Got a 99. Tested again, got a 62!!! Used the control solution, with a 111. Tested again, got a 121 and again, 117. I figured its problem was worked out with the 2 close readings. By the way, I tested the UltraLink against blood glucose level labwork last week, it was accurate.
Are you supposed to use the control solution every time you change to a vial with a new code?
I’d like to mark those readings as an error, but the UltraLink won’t let me, nor will the CareLink software.
