Default Re: Nima's crazy journey

Tomorrow we are reducing his Kcal intake to 1000Kcal, what he needs to eat to get to 75 lbs. I am going to do a random blood sugar at about 1200, when the NPH starts to peak. I'll do another curve next week.

Default Re: Your dog's diet, insulin, and meter used

Hi all,

I just have a quick question for the people who use Freestyle Lite strips in their Alpha Trak 2. I tried to do this, however when I was entering in the code it would only let me select even numbers 2,4,6,etc... when I needed to enter in 17.

Has anyone had this happen to them?

What I did was stick a strip in, then tried to program the code in so I could run a control test with the different strips.

My new bottle of Alpha Trak 2 strips came in the mail and hour later, so I just used them instead.

Any ideas??

What's the code for your new AlphaTrak test strips? I'd use that "code" for your first try with the FreeStyle Lite test strips (ignore the code on the FreeStyle Lite container). That's what I do and so far the FSL & AT strips have read within about 10 points of each other. When you compare the strips, let me know the results

I've use 3-4 vials of FreeStyle Lite strips and so far just leaving the AlphaTrak meter set to the last AlphaTrak code has worked for me. Can't guarantee this will always be close enough.

I'm curious, what code are your Alphatrak strips, and what code is on the FSL container?

The AT2 strips were 6 and the FSL were 16.

Oddly enough, my father was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes so now he has all the FSL stuff I've bought. Back to only expensive strips for Nima!

Nima's last curve was really good... 300-200 range. His urine culture also showed Amoxicillin resistant E. coli so he's on Cipro now and his next curve in 1 month should be even better!
