    I've got a few meters now, and find the Glucomen allways reads 10-15% lower than the rest. I just stick to one meter, which I know is consistent. Worrying about 10-15% here and there would drive me mad!!!

    Phone up the CS of any meter company, tell them you are T1 and test 4+ times a day and they will literally chuck meters at you!
