Seven testing methods for self-monitoring of blood glucose were compared with standard reference methods. All of the methods examined showed reasonably close correlation with the reference methods. There was a general trend toward greater absolute and percentage deviation with higher plasma glucose values. Nevertheless, for clinical purposes, accuracy is sufficient to permit use of any of the methods tested.
