I just got out of the hospital on a non-diabetes related issue and discovered during my stay how different the hospital meter and my meter were for the daily periodic blood glucose testings. Sometimes the meters within 10% and sometimes off by 35%. This is scary. Then we tested a finger on my other hand within minutes and got results totally different from our original finger stick. BTW: We drew blood from the same finger stick on every occasion. Have you had similar situations? What does this say about the general accuracy of our home meters compared with the hospital ones that are calibrated almost daily?
