Worst Meter On The Market
on October 1, 2011
North Carolina Medicaid recipients beware...
These meters are very unreliable, and have been responsible for sending Type I diabetics to various emergency rooms across the state. Doctors have even complained, in writing, to various state representatives about these lousy meters, too.
Prodigy paid the state of NC several million dollars for exclusive rights to supply the state's Medicaid recipients with diabetic test meters. Therefore, said recipients are no longer allowed to choose a meter of their choice.
Our meter(s) have / has been off by as many as 50 points within two minutes of separate testings. As of this writing, I am in touch with our local state representative about reexamining North Carolina's contract with Prodigy.
In the mean time, I suggest using True Results meters, or some other top brand. Don't endanger your health by using faulty test meters & strips from Prodigy.
