    Hi all,

    Is anyone having issues with their metre. I often have to reinsert a strip before my metre comes to life and it often takes 2/3 attempts to send the result to my pump.

    Is this something worth putting up with or mentioning it at my pump follow up appointment on Monday with the next medtronic rep ??

    @blueeyed81 I have the same trouble with my Glucomen LX meter.. It does work but as you say.. I often need to reinsert the test strip. I have another unit a Contour Next One, but I need to buy more strips before I can start using it. If yours was provided by your HCP, they may well replace it for you. :)

    Yes, but I'm certain in my case its down to not putting it in properly. It only happens the once though. I have 2 meters one of which i bought just incase i shall take note of the meter it happens with should it be just one of them.

    Regards
