Is it safe to use one type of strips in another type of vial?
I just noticed that the vial for my backup meter (Freestyle Lite) strips is quite a bit smaller than the vial for the Contour USB that I use. I think the vial for the OneTouch strips is even smaller than the Freestyle vial, if I remember correctly from when I used it.
One of the things I don’t like about the Contour USB is the HUGE vial they put in there. I don’t understand the point of having a tiny meter if it’s paired with an enormous vial. So I was wondering if it would be safe to use a Freestyle or OneTouch vial instead, and just keep refilling it with new strips (replacing it, say, every six months or something)?
