I read this somewhere earlier, and I'm a little confused. With the other meters I've used, if the glucose reading is 500-600 or more, the meter just reads HI. I haven't had any issues with our Verio meter as of yet, and I'm wondering if replacing it is really necessary as a reading that high would be extremely rare??
Verio IQ meters will fail if the blood glucose is 1024 mg/dl or higher -- specifically, it will power off and need to be reset.
Since LifeScan is replacing the meters that have this problem with new meters that do not, I would get your meter replaced.
As their note states, as long as blood sugars are below 1024 mg/dl, the meter will perform as expected.
