Almost everytime I measure the blood glucose levels in both right and left hands there's always a difference of 10-20mg/dL. When I first noticed this, I tried using on different individuals, but for everyone the right and left hands had a minimum of difference of 10mg/dL. Using a glucometer of a different company still gave the same results of differences in both hands.
So why is there is a difference between right and left hand blood glucose values?
I couldn't find any satisfactory reason on the net. Also if there is this significant difference then with which value should we go with? The lower value or the higher value?
Not only me but a lot of people has found this difference. When I searched the net this question is quite common. If any of you has a glucometer if you may experiment and let me know the results. I also talked to some doctors. They agreed to have this difference but couldn't give me a possible reason for this.
