Re: Meter accuracy

Home Forums Living with type one Meter accuracy Re: Meter accuracy


The last time I was in hospital (and had a convenient hypo), my AccuChek Active (plasma equivalent) gave a value of 2.4, while the laboratory said 1.something. At home, I’ve used both the AA and 2 Bayers (Contour USB & TS) when low, and when AccuChek says 2.something, the Bayers chime in with 1.somethings – same as laboratory, so at least I’ll trust their baying when I’m low…(oh, as for comparing different meters, make sure they all give plasma equivalents, not whole blood; whole blood’s values are higher than plasma’s)
