Diagnostics.

Have you been diagnosed yet? and the figure between meters is quite a difference Do the test again with clean hands and compare the meters.
What other symptoms do you have like loss of weight with no effort and always hungry, Thirsty, Tiered most of the time, No energy.

I have that same problem with my bayer contour and my accu chek aviva.I would run a control test to see if there were both in range.

The symptoms seem to match a high reading, but like the rest here, you need to retest to make sure. Also if you get a big difference in numbers, one of your meters might need new batteries. I know I have the one touch ultra mini and the one touch ultra 2 and I have checked them against each other, they are only a few points off from each other.
