Default Re: Annie - Getting too smart!


OK, I was bored and decided to run some tests. I used my AlphaTrak meter, set to "7" as per the AlphaTrak strip vial. I tested on a single drop of blood with three different test strips; AlphaTrak, old style FreeStyle Lite, new style FreeStyle lite:

AlphaTrak = 85
Old FreeStyle Lite = 92
New FreeStyle Lite = 84

Looks like keeping the AlphaTrak meter set to "7", while using either the new, or old, FreeStyle Lite strips gives good results.

We had a production line going! My wife was switching strips in the meter, I was getting the sample on the strip and Annie was wondering what was going on with all the testing!
Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9 years.
