Default Re: Problems with glucose meter

The Alpha will give a warning on the display if the battery is low. My first battery lasted about 2 years.

I always believe there is a risk in using different strips for a meter. Others on here I believe use a human meter but use the proper meter strips with it. Then they figure out the math to convert the readings to the dog equivalent.

So maybe consider a different meter and the appropriate strips. And keep one vial of Alpha strips to be able to spot check the new/human meter now and then.
