His new number is only 77...how could it only have gone up by 1 and what are we supposed to do now?

He doesn't seem to be in any 'trouble', just lazy...that does seem to be his natural state! ;)

Still waiting on the mail to get here to see if the AlphaTrak2 is in the mail. Maybe I should just wait on it then test him?

Vinnies not dropping. test his fasting number tonight then drop him down 1/2 unit. 18 iu. then test again at his low point.

cut back on his walks for now.

are you adding abit of a carb to his food?

apparently the relion prime reads 20 to 30 lower than the alphatrack. the conversion to alphatrack is divide the relion meter by .7 .

77 .7 = 110

Deacrease by 1/2 unit tonight should bring Vinnie up more

hope this helps

Think you really mean to decrease?

Yes please decrease! And I would decrease by a unit. Lets get his level up a bit to give him some cushion. We don't know his pattern well enough to run this low in my opinion

I apologize for the error. I edited the post to read decrease.

Ok...got the AlphaTrak2 in the mail today and decided to use it just before his evening meal. I used both and got these numbers:

ReliOn Prime...121
AlphaTrak2...245

Why would they be so far apart? Here I thought I was understanding this better, but not now. :(

The best thing to do for peace of mind is to take it with you to the vet and match it up with their test. I've never used anything but the alpha track It was less than 10 points different than my vets test

That's a much wider difference than I've seen between my Prime and AlphaTrak2. What "code" are the AT2 test strips?

:)Excuse me, I'm not trying to insult, but did you "code" the AT2?;) I can see someone coming from an automatic meter like the Prime to a meter that needs to be coded to make a mistake.

Other side-by-side tests will be interesting.

I suggest you reduce by a couple more units until its all sorted....perhaps 16? Trust me, you do not want to experience a seizure due to hypoglycemia....:(
