"Out of interest, I am just reading about this. Apparently, after meals, or more generally non-fasting, arterial and capillary (finger-prick) levels closely correspond, but venous glucose (as measured in hospital)is lower. So that would be a…"

"Thanks! That is very interesting and at least gives me a new line to investigate. It would be easier if Roche would take the trouble to explain. It still doesn't explain the discrepancy between my home test readings and the hospital reading,…"

"If I can hazard my reasoning... the home fingertip (capillary) sample meters we use are programmed to read a higher value "equivalent" to the venous readings that would be taken by a lab. The venous bg numbers are measurably higher than…"

"Told to expect a response a week last Monday, but none arrived, so now I have written to the CEO (MD) of the UK branch. There has to be a simple answer, but they don't seem to want to provide it."

"Well, there is another possibility. Dr. Bernstein in his latest teleseminar talked about the new Aviva plus strips. I believe he said that in order to reduce false lows that were occuring with maltose (?) Aviva had reformulated their strips to…"

"Apart from variations due to inaccuracy, though, there is a systematic difference between the reading that control solution and blood will produce, as I understand it."

Brian (bsc) replied to bellx15's discussion 'Accu-Chek Compact Plus question'
"Although actually, the Accu-check has performed markedly better than +/- 20% in the latest study."

Holger Schmeken replied to bellx15's discussion 'Accu-Chek Compact Plus question'
"But that is what technical deviation means. It can deviate from test to test - even with the same blood. With +/-20% deviation you will see differences of +/- 1 mmol/l and more."
