Good morning,

I had a bad experience last night and want to share the important details with you. A week ago I received my re-order of pods and strips from Edge Park. The strips they sent me were the new version that have an orange label and have the little jabber things at the end to use less blood. I had a very very bad low last night and suffered through a pretty rough night of managing. This am I tried other strips monitors etc and saw MAJOR inconsistencies. I just called Abbott and was informed that the strips sent to me by Edge Park DO NOT work with the meter in the Omni Pod. This is currently being dealt with by Abbott and I do not yet know the outcome. 

If you have recently received the orange strips from edge park do not use them you will get bad readings. My readings were off by as much as 55 points.

The new strips really do have a 30-40 point variance. I called my pharmacy and abbott and really got nowhere. They said that they filled the prescription correctly. (which they did since abbott stupidly did not give it a new name) My simple solution is just to buy a freestyle lite meter and carry that around I guess?
