Per an MD's recommendation, I bought the Aviva and its expensive strips, and decided to see how accurate it was. So on same finger - same blood sample these are the results while on Metformin er
Aviva Micro Relion
4pm 107 133 (!) (haven't eaten since 12 noon - 21 gm carbs)
4:01 119 112
ran out of blood - so same finger, new puncture:
4:04 115 122
so since I didn't wipe off the first reading (i guess it was too serous) the first reading was 107 with the Aviva, but same sample, more blood - it was 133 on the Relion. The MD had been saying that the Relion was not accurate in that it was too low. Hmmm.
So, the Aviva had a 12 point difference, and the Micro relion had a 21 point spread. wow.
Did other people get the same results?
