Test Strip Accuracy FAIL.

You're checking your BG after consuming a Dunkin' Donuts Latte Lite for the first time. You know your morning carb-to-insulin ratio is lousy, so you're expecting a high. Which of the following is correct?:

BEEEEEP! Sorry, wrong answer. The correct one is "who knows?!?" (Ugh. I SWAG'ed 3U Humalog just in case...)

Thanks for playing!

My head is asploding right now. I try never to test twice in a row. Drives me batty.

So frustrating. I once had my meter tell me my blood sugar was . . . ready? . . . 14. That's right, FOURTEEN!! Luckily I wasn't and I knew I wasn't - but what if I was a newbie and didn't know I should re-test? I would have panicked and ate a ton of carbs I didn't need!!

oh...I've seen those numbers before when I eat that choc. donut :-(

Oh man, that is so frustrating!!! How the heck are you supposed to figure out your insulin with such different results. Man.

But - the asploding picture made me smile and chuckle. So that's good!
