So every time there is a small issue with our current meter, freestyle (abbots) solution to the problem is to send us a new meter. This is all fine, however I am concerned about having to take the new meter to the lab to get blood work for comparison and meter accuracy, because between our 4 meters it seems like we have to do lab comparisons every month because there is always something happening with one of them. So I am wondering does everyone always take a new meter to the lab for blood work comparison before using the meter or do you just start using it? They are going to send me some control solution. Would the control solution test be good enough to test the accuracy? I am tired of doing lab work for each little issue with meters.
