Not because I have diabetes, no, but because I use a non-compatible i.e. not Microsoft computer.
In an effort to get my BG chart to the endo's office in a timely manner, and as I consider the fax machine to be on a par with 8-track stereo and they can't read a spreadsheet that isn't MSexcel I thought I would hook up my One Touch UltraSmart meter to the internet and download the results. Hah. Denied. This was the message on the Lifescan form that demanded 59.99 + S&H for a USB cable and the Diabetes Management software that I needed to complete the process:
Note: LifeScan does not have a validated cable or software for use with Macintosh
What could be harder than dealing with diabetes? Dealing with lazy companies that can't be bothered to write that extra bit of code. UltraSmart? I don't think so.
