OneTouch UltraMini vs Contour Next (One?): Lab Draw Challenge 2019

I’ve been known to roll like that, yes. :grin: Actually, I put back in the Guardian only to check out the updated transmitter (word on the street is it’s a dream machine), and I put the Libre on for fun.

  1. I think that might be a little shy… so 68-69. My Contour is usually a hair high.

I’m gonna be mad if it comes back 73… :thinking:

I know there are people who get good results with it, but I’m definitely not one. Even with that being true, three scores like that… that’s insane.

Darn… Was hoping it was a verio, so would add more support to my verio joke…"seems as though "verio"is a good name, since it seems to “verio” all over the place…

So… Of course this is how this would go… but it turns out my endo didn’t “add glucose levels” to the lab request— only a1c. I’ve never had that happen before where I’ve had an a1c done and not received a blood glucose value from the lab draw. So I’ve got nuthin, @Aaron. Sorry. :confused:

The only thing I do have is that it turns out that my CVS Health At Home A1c Test Kit was .4 off from my lab a1c. Surprised me… I’ve never had one be more than .1 off before. However, I also usually use the A1c Now brand— so I think I’ll order some more of that brand from now on.

So I guess it’s mission failed. We’ll get em next time. :roll_eyes: Sorry again.

Man, I was hoping to be right for once. Oh well, will have to wait until next year.

May not have access to the actual blood sugar at the time of the draw, but I do have the next best thing: confirmation that I had a bad vial of OneTouch test strips. The meter continued to read much higher than my actual numbers, so I tested out the test of the vial. My meter was fine; my test strips were not. I’m glad I asked here before dropping the meter in the trash.

Anyway, OneTouch: still not my favorite, but not as bad as it looked.
