Maybe, maybe not. Once I took my meter with me to an app't when I knew they'd be doing lab work for my fasting as part of my physical exam. On that day, the lab result came out the same as on my meter but it's the only time I've done it. I have 4 (yes, 4) meters here, 3 of which use the same test strips and when I use all 3 at the same time, I'll get readings that are anywhere from a few points different to sometimes 20 between the highest and lowest. I presume the lab would be more accurate of course but it's hard to say how accurate our own personal meters are each time.
