confused about the readings they're getting from the newer blood glucose meters

Some patients are confused about the readings they're getting from the newer blood glucose meters...FastTake, Glucometer Elite, SureStep, Precision QID, etc.

Plasma readings correlate better with lab results...but many patients don't realize that these readings are different from the ones they got from their older meters.
