Bayer Diastix Strips vs AlphaTrak
 
I have been using both the Bayer Diastix Strips and the Alpha Trak Glucose Monitor.

The last few days I have been walking Yukon and taking a urine sample for the Bayer strips and then also doing the Alpha track.

When the Bayer strips show green which means that his blood glucose is under 250 I then do the alpha track and it shows in the 400s to 500s.

Same thing when the Bayer strips show brown which means his blood glucose is 500 or above I do the alpha track and it shows in the low 300s.

Has anybody had the same problem? I am assuming the Alpha Trak is correct. I have used two separate bottles of the Bayer strips with the same color on each.

I just like to use the strips more than poking him and hurting him.

By the time blood sugar is processed and urinated out it is not the same as blood sugar is now testing with a blood glucose meter

what you are getting is a past look at what blood sugar was testing urine and the numbers you posted make complete sense

So both urine and blood are probably testing adequately
