I almost have pre-diabetes (A1c of 5.6%) and I bought a Tru Metrix meter to test my blood as I try to make lifestyle improvements that might help keep me from becoming diabetic.
This morning I got a scary high reading first thing in the morning so I repeated the test 3 more times as shown, all in succession over a 5 minute or so period of time. I had not eaten. All were fresh sticks. I did not re-squeeze a stick
- 185 (stick ring finger on my right hand)
- 108 (stick ring finger on my left hand)
- 149 (stick ring finger on my right hand)
- 112 (stick ring finger on my left hand)
I then used number 1 and number 2 test solutions to test the strips, and both passed which supposedly means the strips and meter are working properly. (I don’t have test solution 3 at this time.)
What might I be doing wrong to cause these inconsistent results? Tips and tricks are greatly appreciated.
