The CDE I met with here gave me a truetest generic meter and prescribed me 300 strips for it a month-- which is what the pharmacy filled here this time instead of the onetouch. I've tested it side by side with the onetouch, and have found that the truetest reads consistently lower, every time. Appearently the accuracy tolerance is not all that tight for any of them. For example I tested with my last onetouch strip a little while ago and is read 93. Then I tested twice with the new truetest meter and got 74 and 79. Previously, I've tested with the truetest and got 110 when the onetouch was reading 130.
I guess the only way to know which one was more accurate would be to have a third meter... In your experience is that much variation between meters to be expected? I have tested with the truetest several times in a row and found its readings to be fairly consistent and repeatable. Truetest is nice in the regard that it only uses .05ml of blood, which is half what the onetouch uses, it's comparable in speed too. The meter is kind of a big honker so I think I might pick up the true2go miniature version before my upcoming trip.
