Another way for a quick and cheap accuracy test of your meter is to "stick" your spouse or a good friend (you'll find out who your real friends are).......assuming he/she is not on AC you should get a reading close to 1.0 (normal INR). I do this once, or twice, per year with my wife. If her reading varied much from 1.0 I would suspect some kind of problem and follow up with my doc.......have had no meaningful variance yet.....8 or 9 years on two meters.That was my plan to periodically compare to a lab draw.........
