Does anyone really use control solution for their test strips?

Used it once a couple of years ago, when I thought there was a problem with my meter..If I remember right I had a test meter years ago. and every time I got a new batch of test strips I would have to check the code number on the strips. They weren't always the same..If it wasn't the same I would enter the new code value and use the test solution to make sure my meter was calibrated right..With the new meters you don't have to do this

I have used it in times past, but here lately, not at all. Don't even know if there is a solution for my meter.

I've done it numerous times over the years but don't do it on a regular basis … Sometimes I'll check with different meters to compare readings if I think something isn't right …, @ times I'll take my meter to doctor's office and check and have them check with theirs to compare also …
