Sounds like you have been under stress lately, hopefully things will get better. Are you eating such as to try to keep the carb load low and fats high enough? May try lowering calories a bit, maybe upping the exercise.

I don't know any details, just giving you something to think about.

GL!

99: I've been getting strange readings on my meter lately. I woke up Saturday morning and tested 108. I thought, there is no way I'm 108. Re-tested again a minute later and got a 95. Last night I tested 105, re-tested and got a 93. I'm using Bayer Contour Next USB meter. Is my meter getting whacky or did I get a strange supply of test strips?

Most likely neither. These are all within meter variance of 20%. So a 100 can be anywhere from 80 to 120.

When I do an immediate retest with my Contour Next USB , it usually repeats to within 5 or 6 points.

Try to keep your test strips at as stable a temperature, and as low a relative humidity, as possible. Much of the so-called "meter accuracy" is really test-strip accuracy. (in my opinion)

This usually means "Do not keep them in the bathroom."

Isn't that a 40% variance?

Or, plus or minus 20%?

No, Dave, it's 20% either way. There has to be a starting place, which is what the 100 represents. The variation can go either way - plus or minus, as Kathryn says - the percentage stays the same.
