Try something for me. Next time you check your glucose, right after you get your first result, immediately poke another finger and test again. See if the numbers are the same.

FWIW my morning numbers are always higher than my night time numbers and will continue to raise until I eat, but I am weird.

I do seem to be closer to finding the solution for me though.

7:58pm, taken in index finger: 160 one hour after dinner. 7:58, taken in ring finger: 173!

What happened? I don't understand how there can be a 13 point difference? I have another backup meter . . .should I check again???

118 - yay.

Robin, 13 points is within the 15% error range. It may be a nothing. It could also be that whatever you ate tonight digested slower resulting in a higher reading later. On the other hand, your body may simply not put out enough insulin to combat what you ate in a meaningful way. Mine USED to go down from 1 hour. It no longer always does now which is why I'm on insulin.

The results were at the same time. That is what I was trying to show her, that there can be natural variances.

Natural variances of 13 points on two different fingers on the same hand?

I control tested my meter afterward and it's in within the accurate zone.

Do the math. It's an 8% variance. It could be a natural variance or a meter variance. Not sure about the Verio because they have been upgraded, but Accucheck is the only one that is verified by studies to be within 10% accuracy. Everybody else is within 15% (which was the new requirement last year).

My source is this study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23063032
I don't know if they have updated it since everybody but Accucheck had to improve their meters.

Thank you, Bunjee . . .wish I'd known about that study earlier. But I've been to AccuChek's website this morning and found one similar to IQ (backlit) and it even utilizes an app for a report. They have a program where you can get a free meter and strips at a discount, so signed up for that and will take it to my pharmacist today.

For the second day in a row, it was 114.
Feeling good! I was able to work in the garden, grabbed a red raspberry or 2. Picked peaches, bathed the dogs and cats, planted beans, weeded my corn, tied up my tomatoes, and ready to go grocery shopping.

Today, Fri 7 Jul - 135! I guess it was due to eating an ice cream last night. I ate one of those Enlightened Ice Cream bars.

A 104 this morning. Our water treatment specialist brought fried catfish for lunch yesterday. I nibbled on some all day long.
