Since the 21st, I am surprised at the good results of some of the Petsure.. I also switched code to 36 and back to code 20 on 8/21.
AT 436 PS 429
AT 139 PS 135
AT 232 PS 246
AT 324 PS 277 repeat AT=277..1 am (late) none make any sense
I just re ordered AT, FS, Petsure and now purchased InsulinX= great numbers listed by and FDMB member...I'm exhausted...but poor Suzie!!!

OMG..I had not read this about changing codes..though I just ordered more to compare to AT. PS is lower usually ( for Suzie) but not by much...However, they may be right about "bias" since whenever going to DVM, the venous blood is always lower than Alphatrak???

The different codes that are needed can be found on the chart on the side of our product box as well as in the informational insert. The codes needed are also described in the chart below:

Species First Generation AlphaTRAK® Meter (Gray Meter) AlphaTRAK®2(Purple Meter) AlphaTRAK®2 Turbo Code
Cats Code 7 Code 22 Code 4
Dogs Code 7 Code 20 Code 2
What is the AlphaTRAK®2 Turbo code?
The AlphaTRAK®2 Turbo code, is an alternative coding option that provides blood glucose readings closer to AlphaTRAK® test strip results. It is the recommended option for previous AlphaTRAK® test strip users, who want to produce similar results with the PetSure!® test strips.

Due to differences in manufacturing, PetSure!® test strips tend to produce lower readings on codes 20 and 22 than the AlphaTrak® test strips. Using the AlphaTRAK®2 Turbo code yields a higher reading which will more closely resemble the results of the AlphaTRAK® test strips. While both readings are accurate and fall within the accuracy range of at-home testing equipment, the AlphaTRAK®2 Turbo code option allows for a smooth transition from AlphaTRAK® test strip use to PetSure!® test strips.

(This does not mean that the results from testing with the assigned codes are any less accurate. It simply means that PetSure!® results seem to be negatively biased while AlphaTRAK® results are usually positively biased to the true glucose level.)
