Hi Doctor, First a small background--my husband is 31 years old, is very over-weight, and diabetes runs in his family. For awhile now, he has had some health issues , and after doing some online research, it turns out that the symptoms point to possible diabetes. I told him that he needs to go see our family doctor, but he is refusing to do so, because he doesn t want it to affect his health insurance. Instead, he purchased the True2go glucose test. He kept testing wrong/ruining the strips-except one (last one he had)-which I helped him with (a little)--his last one when he tested, the meter read Lo . I looked in the manual again and there s nothing in there about that reading?
