Hi guys. I have spent the whole weekend documenting my bloods as a newly diagnosed type 1, however just realised i didnt calibrate my test strip prior to using them. Will this effect my results i have done all weekend? I hope all my documentation hasnt been for naught :mad:....i know my fault, i should have been a bit more thorough with the instructions :eek:

Some meters you have to punch in the number on the strip package. Most of the new meters don't require that. Is that what you are talking about or do you mean test with the solution. In 5 years I have never used the solution to test my meter.

yeh not the solution, its just the test strip code. You insert it before you use all the strips so the meter knows the strip code. There are just warnings that the readings might not be accurate if this isnt done so i was concerned
