RE: [IP] continous glucose meter



I have been using the Freestyle meter for about a year now.  Love the stick
part... PAIN FREE - REALLY!!!  I do find that the BG readings are not as
accurate as say the AccuChek or the One Touch (I have them all).  In fact,
when I did two tests back to back with the same prick area (same blood from
the same stick - just two separate tests) I have experienced readings as far
apart as 40-50 points...  That makes me nervous...  I have called them and
since the control test comes out OK they say there isn't a problem.  My dad
has the same meter and experiences the same thing...

The unfortunate thing is that it is measuring interstitial fluid and not
plasma or serum levels.  Know body has been able to tell me about the
accuracy of interstitial fluid compared to plasma or serum.
