My CDP gave it to me she said it is the most accurate meter and the strips come in a 50 count instead of a 25 count so they are cheaper and make less D'trash!

I heard about it from Judy Pentedemos at Nashoba Valley Medical Center. One of the dieticians from there, Alicia, went to work for Wavesense. Judy gave me a Keynote meter she was given as a sample. It was outdated when I bought it and just upgraded it online. In addition, I purchased one from American Diabetes Wholesale.

My current One Touch Ultra Smart meter is giving me wacky results lately - and with the number of lows it claims I'm having, my A1C should have been about 5.7% instead of 5.9%.

I'm not convinced it is the meter, but I believe it might be the strips. I get similar results from my One Touch Minis (yes - I have a collection of colors!). IN the guitar world that is called GAS - guitar acquiring syndrome. When you have diabetes, it is called MAS - Meter acquiring syndrome. They had a recall for a certain lot number, but I'm not sure that it should have been limited to that particular lot.

I bought a Relion meter at Walmart and the results were within points of the Keynote. The thing I like about that meter is the individually wrapped strips. I had forgotten how nice that is. When I used the Precision QID, the strips came this way. Much easier to use and carry in a pocket.

I'm also using a Dexcom Seven and thought I would try the Keynote with it to see if I can get tighter control with a more accurate meter. The numebrs are substantially different than my ONe Touch - but if they are more accurate, then I can correct if I'm runnning higher. I've been noticing that the "lows" on my One Touch are not feeling like lows at all.
