"My PDM is acting up. It doesn't recognize that a test strip is in the machine - or it goes back to the home screen and starts the process over before I can use the test strip to test. I called Insulet. First she wanted to blame me - she implied…"

"If worse comes to worse, call Abbott and ask for a free meter that works with the strips that you can get. Not the best solution, but a solution that will get you the correct BG readings needed."

Express Scripts - they do not care there is a recall - do not reorder

For anyone who gets their strips through Express Scripts, do not order test strips through them or you will get recalled strips and no help or care for resolution.I was told by Abbott that they actually do have the new strips. I then ordered from Express Scripts and they sent me recalled strips. I refused to take them (especially since I spent $700 on them) and spent two hours on the phone with ES where they denied even KNOWING about the recall.

Jack's Mom replied to Natasha Bowlds's discussion 'Results of my very scientific test strip experiment. :)' in the group OmniPod Users
"I got the meter and control solution from the regular Abbott line too. Interesting."

Jack's Mom replied to Natasha Bowlds's discussion 'Results of my very scientific test strip experiment. :)' in the group OmniPod Users
"Are the white boxes for 50 strips and the yellow one 100 strips? I found an old white box today at the back of my cabinet as I was cleaning it out of the recalled strips, and that was the difference."

Jack's Mom replied to Natasha Bowlds's discussion 'Results of my very scientific test strip experiment. :)' in the group OmniPod Users
"No I agree, I don't like changing the code either. Who knows if any of it is right, and of course things can always change. The rep today actually offered me a new meter and control solution. I know of other people who got some, and others…"

Jack's Mom replied to Natasha Bowlds's discussion 'Results of my very scientific test strip experiment. :)' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes, I have found that the PDM reads best with old strips on code 17. YDMV. Abbott will send you a Freestyle Freedom meter and control solution for free, if you call and ask."
