This morning I tested my blood sugar twice in the space of a minute using 2 different fingers to calibrate a new sensor and the readings were 5.8 (104) and 8.2 (147), which I put into the receiver. I then tested again a minute later and got 5.8 (104) and 6.7 (120). This afternoon my dexcom reading was 4.2 (75) and when I tested my meter came up with 8.2 (147) and 7.4 (133) in the space of a minute!
To be honest, I’ve never used the calibration fluid stuff that came with the meter (OneTouch UltraEasy) but I wonder if the tests would be more accurate if I were to get a new meter?
Also, when you have to enter 2 start up BGs how do you test? Do you use the same finger? Do you do one straight after the other? I know you only need to enter a BG test every 12 hours but I wonder if doing it more often improves accuracy?
I’d be interested to hear if anyone else has had this problem!
