Re: Human Glucometer and glucose measurements


Here is a glucometer comparison chart from 2016

and a comparison study from 2016 Journal of Diabetes and Science

I usually tell my human diabetic patients (I am a clinical pharmacist) "if its under 120 mg/dl you can probably rely on that +/- 10 mg/dl" (so a reading of 100 is actually 90-110)

Currently, I am trying to time a glucometer BS with a lab BS to compare results for my mare.  The lab sample must be spun and separated fairly quickly (<90 min) or the glucose result from the lab will be falsely low.

In my personal experience in a human hospital setting - even when the on-site lab tests multiple samples the BS can have a wide variety of numbers for just one patient.  It's a very small snapshot in time.
