I've always used code 17 or 18 to get results that tally with my other meters, has everyone reverted to code 16 with the new strips or still using 17 or 18? I've found 16 still reads a little low but am finding 17 a bit better and wondering what others are doing now? I'd appreciate any help.

for me I use code 16, seems to be working for me, guess we will see in April when I get my A1C done. at least for now feels right. I have not checked it against a different meter but it was lower then when I got tested at the hospital.

With all my testing - the new strips read with code 16 what the old strips read at 17 or 18.

Thank you, that's really helpful, I was finding at 16 that is was only a few points lower than it should be which is a big improvement, for me I still think 17 works but at least this is liveable with.

I just got my new strips...I see no difference and am still coding at 18.

Hello -
Can someone please explain coding? We set it to what the test strip bottle says. How do we know if we need to do something different?
