Digital blood glucose monitors are reliable ? They give accurate readings ?

I have to get my blood tested every six months. This includes a fasting blood glucose measurement. So for several times, I tested with my own glucometer at the same time. I was never more than 3 points off! And that's the American system, which is bigger numbers (I don't know which you use).
Even if it was a few points off, if you use the same glucometer it shows trends up and down, and that's more important anyway.

digital monitors are not always reliable. they show +/_10 points when compared to traditional way of testing blood glucose levels in a lab. Not only these blood glucose monitors, even other digital meters like BP monitors and weighing machines are also not accurate compared to their analog counterparts.
