Avatar f tn Anyone seen / used the new freestyle test strips? I was given them just a couple of days ago. The new shape is nice but I'm suspicious of them. http://www.abbott.com/global/url/pressRelease/en_US/60.5:5/Press_Release_0876.htm I've heard it said that sugar is sugar, your body doesn't know the difference. So why should our test strips? I take my blood sugar when I feel like it's high but these things give me numbers in the 80 -90 range, never above 100.
Tbd The start up kit also came with a discount card than lowered the test strips to about $15 per 50 test strips. I only test once a day in the morning unless I have any issues, so the test strips last a little longer than one that needs to test 3+ times per day.

Avatar f tn Honestly, you need to get one that insurance covers, if it is easy, small amount of blood and no coding required there are a few out there, Contour, One Touch, Freestyle Lite, BD, etc. (even walmart brand meters). Go to the website Childrenwithdiabetes.com and see the reviews as well with the choices that your plan covers.
Avatar n tn No Rx required for test strips. Try wherever you purchased the glucose test meter, or online at Amazon or web sites like americandiabeteswholesale.
Avatar n tn I think the breakdown is that they take off $25 for 50 strips and $50 off for 100 strips or more. We switched from the Accu-Check Aviva to the FreeStyle Lite to save money on strips, since we have to pay for all Rx out of pocket until we reach our large deductible. We haven't shopped around to find the best price for strips, but since our pharmacy raised the price for 200 strips by $50, we should. If she's paying out of pocket for strips, she should shop around for the best prices.
Avatar n tn caused a mixture of blood and other tissue liquids, your numbers could be slightly different from what his real glucose levels are. I test from fingertips and have had many types of glucometers in my 37 years with type 1 diabetes, and have never found them to be inaccurate.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a girl who is 7 years old and from 2 years she is diabetic. We are from Romania, East-Europe and in our country we have big financial problems to buy test strips for my girl's glucometer(they are very expansive for our possibillities). She use in this moment a Free-Style Papillon. Can somebody to help us with some test strips boxes for a low price?My girl measure glycemia times every day and she has 4 shots with insulin.
Avatar f tn The test strips will be an expense and your insurance company may not pay for enough. If you eat the same kinds and quantities of foods consistantly, at the same time, once you have established the routine you can cut down on the sticks. Modern meters have a memory, which means you don't have to write everything down. The technology has matured and they all are pretty good, but as Waverider said, it's nice to have a spare.
Avatar n tn I have been told its for checking to see if you have any glucose in the urine, depending on that you would then need the blood test. Im in the UK and it seems the first step is the urine test according to my NHS walk in centre but you can ask for the blood test straight away if your really worried....but I think that depends on any symptoms.
Avatar f tn Is blood glucose reading of 139 ok two hours after eating? I've just begun self-testing and I've had three readings of 88 (afternoon, no food), 89 (morning before eating or drinking), and 139 (two hours after eating). My mother's family has Type I diabetes (8 out of 11 total) and my father developed Type II before he died. I'm concerned because I have very high "highs" and very low "lows" complete with blurred vision, shaking, anxiety, and constant urination.
Avatar m tn I did something really dumb today and now I'm scared. I was unclogging a toilet when some of the water splashed my hands. I have open wounds on my hands. When I looked down into the toilet I saw some used blood glucose test strips. I didn't see any blood. I immediately washed my hands with plenty of soap. About 1-3 minutes later I washed my hands again 3 times. About 10 minutes after that I washed my hands twice more and disinfected them with alcohol.
Avatar n tn Some meters are more accurate than others. Some perform better than the minimum required range of 20%. I also compare my meter with my doctors from time to time. For some meters, the manufacturer may offer a standard solution so you can test the accuracy of your meter.
Avatar n tn Thanks to both of you. As far as I know, the meter is OK and the test strips are well within expiration. The doctor is very, very hesitant to write a prescription for test strips, so I buy them. It's absurb because with my insurance I could test four times a day free. As it is now, I really hoard the test strips. Yes, I try to watch the carbs and sugars, though I fell off the wagon during the Christmas days and that's probably why I'm showing the higher numbers.

866901 tn?1505506236 In googling "blood glucose test strips", I found several websites which offered test strips and glucometers at varying prices (ie.http://www.diabetesnet.com/test_strips.php). Since your cat is going to need lifelong care, it will pay for you to shop around.

Avatar f tn If a person with HIV accidentally gets his/her blood on the meter or the test strips (supplies) is it possible to catch HIV this way when putting your blood in contact with the test strips (supplies)? Hope this makes sense but I just would like assurance. Thank you!
Avatar n tn is this necessary? do i need the glucose test if my blood sugar test came back just fine??? thanks for the help !
Avatar f tn If repeated testing is required, buying the test strips in bulk may be beneficial. Some stores may offer strips at a reduced rate. You could discuss with a pharmacist as to what would be the most suitable option. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Avatar f tn A glucose test is when they test for gestational diabetes, you drink this orange sweet drink and then an hour later they take your blood. Not sure if it's in the UK or not, but I don't see why it wouldnt be.
