I read on a web site that a home Glucometer uses whole blood for test which includes red cells and these red cell reduce the sugar element. The Labs use the blood which excludes red cells. Thus the home Glucometer may be indicating about 20% lesser results which may give a rather inaccurate / undependable picture. On the other hand one may feel Glucometer results dependable as Red Cells element would always be there to constantly keep reducing the sugar level in the blood. Thus no need to be concerned if Glucometer shows results within specified levels.
Can I have the views on this subject?
