My Verio IQ meter is highly inaccurate. It reads 21 to 23% higher comparing to readings from my two Ultra 2 meters. Verio IQ meter is unsafe to use!
I got this meter for free with 150 test strips at Diabetes Supplies Plus. Comes with a port light to read in the dark.
This is a great product, but kind've pricey.
When I get a new meter, I always see how it stacks up to my previous meter. This one, while slower, is easy to use....BUT, the results almost never come close to any of my previous meters. Example: 2 of my older meters may read (give or take a couple of digits) 150. Contour TS............98 or 185. WAY different. I just don't trust it.
This is by far the best available kit you can buy. I love the glucose meter and test strip reliability to no end. There has not been a day that my blood glucose testing went wrong. This is completely opposite my experiences in the past. I used to run into bad results, error in results and flat out difficulty in the process of getting the sample to the meter. I highly recommend this meter to anyone who wants to stop wasting their time and get the right product on the first try. Believe me, I tried them all!
I find the glucose meter to be a pain compared to other newer meters on the market, like the Accu Chek Aviva. The test strips are great in every sense. I actually wish I could add them to my Aviva, then life would be great.
This is the best machine that I have used.just the right size to keep in your purse.
Not all lancets will fit in all lancing devices, but there are a few brands that are universal. Ask your pharmacist. If they don't carry them, a new lancing device is very inexpensive. Get one that uses the kind of lancets your pharmacy carries ..
You should NOT use the same meter. Most meters keep a running average of the readings, and mixing one persons reading with the other will cause the averages to be confused. While many people ignore these average readings, they are a very important number to know. The only thing better is knowing your last A1C readings (see your doctor . . .)Only the VERY EXPENSIVE meters (used in hospitals) can handle more than one person at a time.But if you look around just a bit, most doctors will GIVE AWAY the meter! You need to go to the right doctor and that would be an ENDOCRINOLOGIST. They can do this because the meter Company is going to make its money selling you test strips. Some meter companies(Roche, Bayer, etc) will give away meters by mail if you meet certain criteria.
I've done the lab test to meter test with several meters they're not close. They're in FDA tolerance but that's not good enough for tight control like I target (85). On top of that, the inaccuracy rate varies based on where your BS is. Low is xxx% inaccurate, normal (85-100) is another and > than that the less they care. You see they maintain only lows really matter so if you're 200 or 250 it doesn't matter. Of course if you're trying to do a correction calculation it does matter!
I want one* so hard! For some reason, each time I get close to buyng one, I chicken out. This may be the push I need. One, either the Multi or the Fast version. Anything is an improvement over the Delica I keep complaining about.
love that it links to the pump! dislike how much blood it takes
I have recently started using this lancing device. It is preferred by my insurance. I like the fact that you never see the needles and the lancets are in a drum containing 6. I find it less painful than previous ones I have used and I like the fact that there are more depth settings.
Cannot use meter right now as my strips have expired and did not relize once they reached that date they would not work. My old meter was not like that.
Wildly inaccurate readings, if something is wrong with sample, test strip, and/or meter itself, it just gives an inaccurate reading.
Other meters, if something is wrong, give you an "Error 5" indication or somesuch, the Prodigy meter just reports an erroneous reading as if nothings wrong. Bad design, bad technology, bad meter!
