    I have received 3 straight mornings with the exact same reading (number). Does this mean my True Metrix Air needs to be reset?

    On average I have a 15-20’% error message on test strips. I have had diabetes for 20years and this is the worse experience on testing. Unfortunately this is what my Florida Blue insurance allows….. What to do?

    I have found this to be very accurate and easy to use including the blue tooth transfer, which was trickey the first time.

    I think True Metrix readings are inaccurate because I got 118 post-prandial then 3 hours later 153 & I had eaten no carbs. Only steak. I’ve had it for a month and most of the readings are high. Now I’m suspicious of all the readings.
