blood glucose

i am doing some blood glucose research involving spiking blood with glucose to obtain a desired amount of glucose in blood.
i have found that when spiking natural blood to obtain values of 500+ mg/dL of glucose and 60% hematocrit, the actual result comes out with an average of 5% over the target value.

i have noticed this trend to be common in female blood? any suggestions as to why this is??
