I have been a T2 for 4 months now. Today I received a new meter in the mail as a result of joining Bayer Healthcare. I signed up for the free meter so I could leave one at work and one at home. So after using the control on the new meter. I tested with my old meter at the same time using the new meter - using the same blood from the initial stick. This was after eating a meal. One meter (new one) showed 161 while the other meter (old one) showed 175. I understand using two different sites at different times can show a different results. But using the same drop of blood?? Any thoughts? I was concerned that either meter is not giving me a good idea. While both numbers were in the ballpark for having a larger meal that I had on this occasion, would the numbers be this different.
Thanks, still navigating my way through the diabetes diagnosis.
