CHAPTER 10 - UNDERSTANDING METER REMOTE ERROR AND OTHER MESSAGES

OTHER MESSAGES
Your meter remote displays messages when there are problems with the test strip, with your meter
remote, and when your BG levels are beyond the measurement limits (higher than 600 mg/dL or lower
than 20 mg/dL). Display messages are in addition to LED and audio cues that alert you to meter
remote problems. Messages do not appear in all cases when a problem has occurred. Improper use
may cause an inaccurate BG test result without producing an error message. To clear a notification,
warning, or alarm, you may need to remove the test strip and/or follow the prompts on your meter
remote screen.
IMPORTANT: There are additional special messages that are displayed on your meter remote when
you begin using your meter remote and pump together as a system. These include messages
regarding communication problems between the devices or if your intended actions might require
additional attention. A third set of special messages covers pump warnings, alarms, and alerts that
appear on both your pump and meter remote displays. If a message is displayed on your meter
remote and is not included in the list that follows, see Chapter 6 in Section III (pages 209–218) for
a list of additional special messages.
