Re: [IPk] HbA1c. Importance of accurate meter

Hi Abigail

That's very interesting. I would not have though that  it would have made that
much difference.

What brand of meter do you use?  Does it say somewhere on the meter box which
are plasma calibrated and which are not.  How are the majority of meters
