MedSun: Newsletter #84, May 2013

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

At extremely high blood glucose levels of 1024 mg/dL and above, the OneTouch Verio IQ Meter will turn off instead of displaying the message “EXTREME HIGH GLUCOSE above 600 mg/dL” as intended. When turned back on, the meter enters the “Set-Up” mode and requires the user to confirm the date and time settings before being able to test again. However, if the glucose level is still measuring1024 mg/dL or above when testing, the meter will shut down again.
