Default Calibrating Meters?

Marion - I don't know what kind of significance a 50-point difference (in U.S. measurement) has. I'm used to mmol/L, like you, so I understand your mmol/L figures, too. A difference of about 3 mmol/L. In one way, it looks like a big difference, but considering the margin for error for any one reading, plus or minus 20% - an industry standard for HUMAN meters (that's what LifeScan, makers of OneTouch, told me), I just don't know.

Kathy, Natalie, or anybody else - can you calibrate a meter properly based on just ONE reading? I'd think you'd need several!
