Re: [IP] different test values

There are a lot of differences in testing.  If you have to "milk" your
finger a lot, the results can be different than if the blood is flowing
freely when you do your test.  A test from your arm will vary from a test
from your finger.  Lets be careful when doing meter comparisons.  A lot of
factors can affect the reading.  Also, all meters have to be within a
certain percentage of lab results, so the higher or lower you are the
results can be further apart.  For example:  10% of 300 is 30 points, 10% of
100 is 10 points, but the varying amount is still 10%.
