Welcome. I also find the nutrition tracker very helpful. It is so much easier and I'm much more likely to record everything this way rather than writing it down in a paper journal.

WELCOME and Good Luck with the meter. Agree that you would be better off dialing the number on the meter or in the guide that came with the meter. If they send you a replacement it will have to come from the Manufacture.

Keep in touch so we can find out if it was replaced and how your are doing.

Welcome and good for you for jumping right into tracking. Changes happen slowly, so be patient with yourself and learn. BUMMER about the glucometer!

PeanutsMom, From experience, I would say to call the 800/888 # on the meter...I'll bet the manufacturer will just replace it. I had one replaced and it came in 2 days. The Pharmacy won't be able to just replace it.

I love the nutrition tracker on SPARK . I never seem to get enough potssium, or calcium. the minerals and nutrients are hard, for me, to keep up.


But this is a great site. emoticon Good Luck!

I have been using the nutrition tracker for 3 days now and I really like it. I have only had one day that I went over my allotted carbs. I am still over in fat and calories but I am tackling lower carbs first. I am having problems with my gluocose meter so I have not started testing yet. I accidentally got blood in the data port for the test trip and now it is shutting itself off before performing the test. I am taking it back to the pharmacy or calling the help line today.
