I read this today on a blog, email@example.com. I have never heard of using your meter to test the soda at a restaurant. It was mentioned and I tested the theory at home. It did work, but has anyone else heard of this. The regular coke promted my meter to read "high glucose", the diet coke just caused a "strip errror".
I was at Carabas the other night and I just knew they were bringing me regular coke, but the waiter wouldn't trust my taste buds. Later that night and 2 refills later my bg was 248. Next time I think I'll test it and show them my meter. I guess it is one of those things to use at your own risk.
Now we can prove that we are right!
