"Wow. Thank you for sharing. Your family shows how Type 1 is a more appropriate name than "juvenile" diabetes! I wonder how many people with adult onset Type 1 are misdiagnosed as Type 2. Good luck with it all."
"Chele, yes, a hypo could be a side effect of the readings being less than 100% accurate. That is what makes the FDA rules so stupid! Add to that the fact that your body is not a 'machine' (so different hormone levels at different times…"
"Hey Chele. I agree it is frustrating. But you need to understand the reality, which is that the FDA only requires meters be +/- 20% accurate (i.e. if actual BG is 200, a reading of 161 is considered 'accurate', as is a reading of 239 ...…"
"Hate to break it to you big guy, but pretty much every system does this! This shocking reality is because the FDA only require a +/- 20% accuracy with strips. So if the 'real' sugar level is 200, then a reading of 160 is considered…"
"Hi J Blue! :) Yes, I do love the Bayer Breeze2... It is amazingly accurate, and I never have to handle the strips individually (I am just very clumsy...) I wish I could afford using it right now, but I am in between jobs and all that good stuff.…"
"I love the fact that you can recharge it by sticking it in a computer, or using the wall charger. And how easy it is to read, and flick through the readings to review history. And my daughter, who uses it, loves the way it looks ... and that Nick…"
Hi J Blue! :) Yes, I do love the Bayer Breeze2... It is amazingly accurate, and I never have to handle the strips individually (I am just very clumsy...) I wish I could afford using it right now, but I am in between jobs and all that good stuff. That is pretty cool that you work for Bayer. :) Wished the Countour was as good as my Breeze2, though I haven't tried the Contour USB. The Countour just isn't as accurate as my Breeze2. It's reliable... always about 20 pts off of my real blood sugar numbers... but the Breeze2 is always like 1 or 2 pts off of the lab numbers. Pretty impressive. :)
Anyways... I'm just an amateur photographer. I love the art of it, and it's a personal challenge for me... to take a good shot. You can see some of my work here, in some of my most popular shots among my flickr cronies. :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/lizmariposa/sets/72157604265092737/ I do appreciate all the support, and encouragement. :)
