While an inpatient during my recent liver transplant (11th March 2015) The nurses took over my glucose monitoring ( I'm type 2 diabetic insulin dependent ) I decided to compare my machine with their properly calibrated glucose monitor with mine. Using the same capillary blood sample I used mine and they used theirs. The result was so different as to make mine useless and as I decide the insulin dose based on the reading positively dangerous. The hospital gave me a new machine when I was discharged and when I got home I compared the two - once again the results were very different. Has anybody else had this problem ? Any suggestions on how to ensure your readings are accurate ? (ps my transplant was very successful and I'm now fit and well after just 5 weeks )
