    Ok I know why freestyle have instigated this code to cover their backs, But I've had type 1 diabetes for 35 years now and I can say I'm pretty qualified to calculate my own insulin levels. I would like to have this function as a base level to help calculate my insulin dose. Problem being my next appointment with my diabetic clinic isnt for another 3 months!. If anyone has this code I would really appreciate it. Could you email it to me at [email protected] and title the email "freestyle code" so I can fish it out of my junk mail.
    Thanks sooo very much folks :wink:

    Thanks so much AM Brenan for posting that!
    I was infuriated when I recieved my meter the other week and discovered I needed to see a "diabetes specialist" to obtain the code; as if I'd take any advice from my diabetes clinic, they're worse than useless at the best of times :evil:
    I'm not that impressed by the insulinx, compared to my freestyle-lite it's a brick, and the backlight and display needs a lot of work.
    Jus :)

    Thats true! but I like the log function. I know the lite version has this sort of function but this one is so much easier to access and read plus you can plug it into your laptop and make a printout (so I'm told, i havent actually done this yet). Despite the size the carry case isn't that much bigger than the lite version. :)

    Looking at the dates these queries have been posted, you probably already have the code. But for those of you who are new members, or have just got one of these meters, the code is CAA1C. If you are using a pump, consider the Accu-Chek Aviva Expert (only available from a hospital clinic) or if you are using a Medtronic Veo pump, like i am. Try the Bayer Contour Next link. Both are very accurate and easy to use once set up correctly.
