Well this is interesting. And it consistantly this far different. This was done at the same time but I just haven't updated my aviva's clock yet. The aviva is always about 15-20 mg/dl higher. Uuugghhh

I happen to have two Aviva meters. One from the VA and another I had to buy on the road when I left the issued one at home. They never read the same. Not even close. So when I go on a road trip I take the high meter and when at home I use the low meter.
Why? Because I tend to push a lot of liquids on the road and, of course, eat in Fast Food Joints. I seldom get low BS problems but need the caution to make sure I do not go too high. At home is just the opposite problem. Sounds corny but it works well for me. Still it would be nice if they read close together.
I have the AccuCheck Aviva and I also use the Target brand meter and most of the time they are very different. If I check on one of them and I don't think it's accurate I'll try the other one and it'll be very different. It's quite frustrating...
