"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…"

"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…"

"You have to hold the universal lancets then remove the cap works just fine."

"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…"

"Does anyone know if the contour USB meter uses the same strips as the contour next link? Has any ever been able to get a second and third free or near free contour next link? Yes i got my one new one. But to use it I need to get some additional…"

"I've found that if you put the strip container in so that the cap is toward the inside of the pouch it works better. It also seems to get looser over time."

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.
