So go to doctor, tell them you've been checking it on whoever's machine, and then get accurate tests run. ...Read more
My six-year-old has been having blood glucose readings from 150 to 233. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?
Is safe to have blood glucose & still feels fine? Is that a good sign of diabetes or false readings the meter gives? I've taken medicine everyday & exercise. I don't know it's the meds that work or false readings.

It Might: Like any other electronic device a good battery supply is essential if we want to get accurate readings. Your numbers may be coming out accurate but change the battery to make sure.

Start for now and you will be confident. ...Read more

Maybe: I suspect you're a diabetic that must monitor your blood glucose. Aren't you doing this on your own at home? You should have a glucometer which measures the blood glucose with a tiny drop of blood.
