I think that the Glucometer that I had in the early 80's ?? was also an Ames Glucometer. If I remember right, I opened the back of the Glucometer and moved a jumper to convert it to mmol/L. I think that the doctor I saw back then changed to mmol/L as soon as it was changed here, and so, I also changed. I can not be sure though as I did not save any of the records, and I used the test strips with the diastix more often than poking my finger. (Levels were Trace to 4+) so you did not have to worry about Metric or SI units. SI units were adopted for all measurement in 1982.

Wow...seems like we in Canada have been immersed in Metric for such a long time...I can't think in any other way...except when it comes to weight, because my scales are marked metric and imperial. Whenever I post here I tu, with some form of measurement...I always have to google it first in order to get the equation correct!
I was formally dx after the switch over (2006)...so I know nothing else! Sorry!!

Welcome Heather!

Thanks Alan :) I haven't used syringes before so will try and get the pens first - noting down their names now and will get my Pharmacist to order them for me :)
Comment by Heather-E on October 9, 2010 at 9:26pm
Hey I am starting my pump Tuesday and as part of that my insulin has been changed from Humulin N & Humalog to Novorapid with Lantus for backup. The cartridges I got from the pharmacy in case I have pump problems look kind of similar to the ones I currently use but will they fit my current pens? Or do I need to somehow get new pens??

just to add to the earlier comments about expiry dates on insulin, my husband recenlty switch from novolin toronto to aspart and when he went to use it, it had expired in 2008! good thing he checked! i guess no one who uses aspart uses syringes anymore, so they really only stock/use penfills. but still, that is like 2 years old!

even though we no longer use our accu-check meter (there is a meter linked to the pump), our son will never give up his multiclix lancet thingy!
