From New Delhi, India:

The test strip manual of my glucometer states that the results given by the meter are not affected by cholesterol up to 600 mg/dl and triglycerides up to 400 mg/dl. But recently a lab test showed my triglycerides to be around 624 mg/dl. What repercussions will this have on the glucometer results?


This may cause an artificial lowering of the glucose reported by your meter.
