Re: [IP] Freestyle Meter



Margo, I have been checking for last few days with both my freestyle meters,
using both at the same time.  The most they have differed is 9 pts.  I had a
low during the night so I checked my forearm with both as well as my fingers
and to my surprise, the readings were ALL 42.  The 9 point difference was
190 versus 199.  Seems the higher it goes the more variable it is.  Hope
this helps.
Sharon (dx 9/00) and Nabs (MM 511 01/03)
