first time using a meter or looking for opinions about this specific model? (which I used and is great)

Actually, I'm beta testing the app. I'm extremely familiar with the meter (unfortunately). Thanks, though

I am now finishing up a horrible period in my life where I wasn't taking care of myself at all. As to your question - on good days, 170 is high and on bad ones it's low. You know how it is - sometimes you're the dog, and sometimes you're the hydrant :)

Love that, the dog and the hydrant. Never heard that saying before but very apt for us diabetes types.

Has anyone had issues with their eyes? I was having difficulty focusing on my monitors at work so I made an appt for my eye dr. She was amazed that my eyes had improved since my last visit 6 months prior & my prescription was too strong. I ordered new glasses (progressive) and still had difficulty so I went back and lo & behold... My eyes "wildly" improved again...in a week. She advised me to see my primary because this was indicative of diabetes. HgA1C 13.8...insulin & Metformin. 2 days after starting insulin everything became extremely blurry (unable to wear either pair of glasses) and my vision totally switched within a few days from nearsighted to farsighted!!! It's been a month without any glasses & I've gone back to nearsighted. Until my eyes level out it would be senseless to order another pair. I am miserable!!! Wondering if this has happened to anyone or they know someone. It's just so weird and annoying

Hi****I was diagnosed t2 just over a a year ago and put onto insulin straight away. One of the reasons for all of this was exactly what you went through my vision improved so much in the months leading to diagnosis that I did not need to wear glasses for a while obviously was happy but worried enough to go to the doctor. Anyway long story short..... itshortwillwillwirereturn r
