Your blood glucose can change quickly, especially after eating, taking medication or physical activity. If you test yourself in the morning, then go to your healthcare professional's office for a blood glucose test, your results will probably not match, even if you are fasting. This is typically not a problem with the meter, it just means that time has elapsed and your blood glucose has changed. If you want to compare your meter result to the laboratory result, you must be fasting. Take the meter to your healthcare professional's office and test yourself by fingerstick within 5 minutes of having blood drawn from your arm by a healthcare professional. Keep in mind that the laboratory uses different technology than the meter and that blood glucose meters for self-testing generally read somewhat lower than the laboratory result. If you are fasting and you do a fingerstick test within 5 minutes of having your blood drawn, here are the general guidelines to compare the meter result to the laboratory result: If your blood glucose is below 75 mg/dL, your results generally should fall within ±15 mg/dL of the laboratory result. If your blood glucose is equal to or over 75 mg/dL, your results generally should fall within ±20% of the laboratory result.
It's a small sample—just 0.6 microliter.
