hi everyone,

i am new to this. recently dxd with prediabetes. currently on bernstein low carb diet.

i have been measuring bg for over a month, and sometimes get very unexpected readings.

i am using an Accu-Chek performa nano

today on 3 consecutive tests i got these numbers.

12.26pm 5.9
12.27pm 4.9
12.28pm 5.5

i understand that numbers can vary but is this normal, or is there something wrong with my meter?

thanks

Meters are not 100% accurate. There is a 10-20% margin of error built into most meters. I have been happy with my Contour USB meter.
