I am posting this because it could be dangerous for insulin dependent diabetics. I am using this glucometer to measure my ketones and glucose during a water fast. I kept getting really high glucose readings (125-154mg/dl) after one week of no food, and I tested a couple of friends that have normal blood sugars and theirs were reading high too, so I knew something had to be wrong. I used another more expensive glucometer that came back with levels in the expected range. When I compared them directly with the same blood stick, the nova Max read 131 and the other brand read 73 (which is expected for me on a fast).
On the plus side the ketones seem to be more accurate - they are measuring where expected and less than 10% different than the other monitor. Being that the test strips are less expensive for this monitor, I will continue using it to test ketones.
Making them much more expensive, not to mention frustrating. I tossed this one in a drawer and ordered the Precision Xtra. More expensive...but works every single time.
So why did this machine return a "LO" reading when testing for ketones? Obviously the machine thought I was testing for glucose even though all I have been using are ketone strips, so the machine was confused, which indicates it is defective. It is the only time I have received such a reading in using 10 ketone strips. Except for this problem indicating a defect in this particular machine, the only other problem I've had are with the test strips themselves: they aren't very stiff, they flex easily when trying to insert, and blood must be applied from the top of the end of the strip, and I had an error with one strip.
Since I was not offered a replacement but only a refund (after many problems with getting this taken care of), I may try this again from another seller..
