I purchased a monitor from American Diabetes Wholesale a few years back and it was $103 for a meter and 100 test strips. They now have this meter and strips offer for about $33.00!!!
It has been very accurate for me. The best part is the strips are about
$16 per 50. The meter is about
the size of a deck of cards, uses regular AA batteries and uses a whole drop of blood but it is ACCURATE. For me, that's all that matters.
I'd return the meter you now have and ask for your money back. They probably have an entire batch of bad meters.

the Prestige IQ Meter at American Diabetes Wholesale.com
