We are now using a 4rth brand new meter and this one seems to be giving numbers that actually make sense. I guess we have to call animas and get a new meter for the ping. I can't believe that allllll the other meters even the new ones out of the box are sooooooooo wrong. I swear this has been so stressful. Now to monitor her bgs hopefully correctly to re adjust all the adjustments! Where the hell is the emoji of the guy hitting his head on the wall?
Thank you for your replies. I'm going to look at the lot number of the strips used today and get those replaced and use others. Andrea, usually she is very active but w the weird numbers I made her rest all day. The nurse on the phone wouldn't listen to us about her numbers and was on the phone w us after daughter tested and was 24. I told the nurse she doesn't look and act low. She wanted us to do low dose glucagon and I told her just wait a minute because I knew the next number would be a rebound. If she had looked low, acted low, felt bad I would have considered it but really felt something else is wrong. Maybe I'm wrong but injecting glucagon into an awake person when they are showing no signs seems so bad. My daughter wasn't having it.
Just for future reference a low dose glucagon is a useful tool for your tool box. I wouldn't personally use it if they could eat and drink and were fine, but it can be useful for a stomach bug or when they can't eat or drink.
Also, squeezing too hard will cause interstitial fluid to release and dilute the blood droplet causing a false low. It might help to click her poker up a setting to see if that is happening.
