And a big hello to everyone. I'm still alive and kicking.

 

I'm finding it reads lower than my meter, but from what I've read, sensors do vary. Make adjustments mentally, they say. Seems common, they say. Looks like I will have to do a mental calibration for each new sensor. I wanted on the Dexcom, but my insurance won't cover it. Cheap buggers.

As long as it stays at the same lower reading it shouldn't be hard to do the adjustments. Meters vary too. Are you sure yours was accurate. Did you ever test it and compare it to a lab reading? How do you know the Dexcom would be any better?

Diabetes devises are really in their infancy as compared to other medical things. My father in law had diabetes in the 1960's and there were no meters then or any other medical devices for diabetes. He had to test his urine and compare it to a color coded stick. Talk about inaccurate!

A special hello back to one.  I am one of the group when you were active and I always appreciated your knowledge and input.  Hopefully, they too, will be able to learn from your knowlege. Libby
