"I don't think any of the meters put out a good bag. I use a small camera bag from Case Logic. They make several different bags so you have to be careful to order the right one. My favorite has a loop you can attach to belt, but also has clip…"

"This is a very late reply, but I only started Sensing a couple months ago (late August 2014). I called Bayer, complaining about the case. They agreed, it wasn't well designed. But they had a second version of the case, made for a slightly…"

"Register your meter with Bayer, after you do, you'll get to choose a new pouch for free. It's bigger and fits things nicely. You also get to pick your own color."

"I managed to fit everything in the bag by putting the meter and the lancet in the long way and squeezing the strips container in upright. It will fit if you play with it. My problem with this Contour Next Meter is that it is consistently reading 1.2…"

"I went to Old Navy. They have cosmetic bags there for 7 dollars that work really well for holding my meter, strips, glucagon kit, and lancets. I got a few of them for pump supplies as well."

"I use a small make up bag, it not only holds my meter, sticker and strips, but also my glucose tabs (in a tube). I am asthmatic as well and my pro air fits as well. I also tuck a little pouch in (like a coin purse) that contains extra lancets and my…"

LivDad replied to Geoffrey Steinman's discussion 'Contour NEXT USB (Link Meter) pouch' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I agree the case is terrible. I just called Bayer also to complain. It makes no business sense to me why they can't get their engineers to make a better case for a this higher end meter. When I called them they were clueless. However, I do like…"

"Finally got my new case! They told me it would take seven to ten days by US Mail, and it took the full ten. It's a little awkward how they flipped the whole orientation around, but I suppose that will take some getting used to. The meter has…"

"through my insurance, i wound up paying $13 for my 2nd link meter, my minimed rep said that she doesn't have any free to give out right now. You can get a free Contour NEXT meter from your Bayer rep, but it won't link with your meter."

"No, the USB and the USB Next Link do not use the same strips. Call Bayer and explain your situation. They may or may not sent you a USB Next Link but they probably will send you a Next or a Next EZ. They make money off of you using their strips and…"

a lot of hard work and effort. We keep a spreadsheet and have every blood sugar, every carb, every insulin dose recorded since diagnosis. We review and evaluate all the time. We change his basal when needed, change his carb ratio daily and through out the day based on many things. Our entire day revolves around John's eating, dosing, checking, etc.
all that being said, he's been really sick lately with upper respiratory stuff and the meds have totally smacked us in the head. We have still worked just as hard, but today's A1C was 6.9. Still within normal limits, but up from where it was. I expected it. Was disappointed, but not surprised.
