Hi, new here :).

I just put in a sensor last night, and the readings are much lower than my meter (right now meter says 133, sensor reader says 86). I know it runs behind a fingerstick, but this seems like it's just low generally. It did go up in a reasonable pattern after eating, and I know seeing the trends is more important than the actual numbers, but now I'm doubting my meter. How do I know which one to trust? The numbers my meter has been giving me do seem high for my a1c of 6.5, but I don't know. Any thoughts? Suggestions?

That is huge and yes I can imagine there would be a difference, but wow. Is there a way to calibrate the CGM? What meter are you using to compare it to?
