In my pursuit of cutting my diabetes supply cost, I've purchased a meter called TRUEtrack. The strips are almost $50 less than what I usually pay. I've tested the readings of this TRUEtrack meter along with 3 other meters I own. The TRUEtrack consistently has my blood sugars 40-50 mg/l higher than my other three meters! I've also used the special liquid & the electronic tester to make sure the unit is working properly. All tested ok, yet TRUEtrack's readings are always off. I guess this is one of those moments were you think "I got what I paid for?"
The lesson for the day is...... always have extra meters handy in the event of an emergency.
