New This Week

  1. The Office of In Vitro Diagnostic Device Evaluation and Safety in FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health has a new web site for Reporting Problems with Glucose Meters and Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems. The goal for this site is to help FDA understand better the real-world challenges experienced by people with diabetes when they use blood glucose meters and continuous sensors. This is not a forum to bash vendors, but rather a way for consumers to help influence design goals for improving these important tools for managing diabetes. You may also email your comments to

    For two days there had been a fly in my house. We'd tried to kill it and it kept escaping Well, this morning, Jesse was eating breakfast and it landed on the table and I was able to squish it. Jesse looked at the poor thing and screamed, "Quick! Get my meter!" This little bugger left a bloody blob on the table. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough blood for even the One Touch Ultra! The funniest part though was that my DH heard him scream (figured there was a problem) and came running into the kitchen dripping wet from the shower wrapped in a towel. He sees us trying to scrape the blood onto the strip, shook his head, and walked out.
