FDA has two draft guidance documents about blood glucose meters that are open for comment until May 7 -- and it is encouraging the public to share its thoughts and suggestions. Join us in commenting. We have links to details, sample comments and a how-to guide.
MAY 7TH, ok that is the deadline. There are like 277 comments and that is IT!
WHY haven't you commented yet? I know I have.
Do you want more accurate test strips? Did you know your meter is allowed to be 20% inaccurate?
Did you know right now there is no testing of the strips that are being made now? They can be more than 20% off because no one is making sure they are NOT more than 20% off. Inaccurate test strips can lead to serious consequences, insulin doses are based off the number that is on your meter's screen. That is serious business, inaccurate insulin dosing can lead to an ER trip or more seriously, death.
Did you know we can request the FDA to make our test strip and meter MORE accurate?
Please go to http://www.stripsafely.com/sample-page/guidance/ and follow the directions to leave your comments and let the FDA know just how VERY important this is to people with Diabetes.
DO IT NOW BEFORE YOU FORGET PLEASE!
