" ...  They state that the FDA REQUIRES blood glucose test strips to be 95% accurate, and their Prodigy brand is 100% accurate. ... The FDA does NOT require such accuracy (even in a clinical setting!) ... The FDA on the same test meter in question should 99% of meters be +/-20% of accurate, or at a minimum, read 80-120 mg/dL. ... It is not hard for the company to say that they are 100% accurate since in this scenario, 100% is the wider of the test ranges. ... Did I say there is NO WAY to verify it’s accuracy claim  ...  "
