Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test strips va


645800 tn?1466864555 He finally got the VA to put him on insulin since the oral medications were not controlling his glucose and also making him sick. But the one catch is that he is suppose to check his glucose 5 times a day but the pharmacy won't dispense more than 50 test strips for a 90 day period. So once again he is having to fight that board at the VA about his prescriptions.
572651 tn?1531002957 Well hopefully today is not an indication of how my week will go. Opened up a new batch of test strips of my glucose meter and it didn't have the coding thing to plug into my meter. So I had to go on-line to order a new set of test strips from the VA. So I won't be able to check my glucose until a new box of strips come in ( hopefully with the coding thing). I also started getting tremors in my left leg and dizzy when I tun my head this morning. Hopefully those will go away by Tuesday.
Avatar n tn Ideally you should have your physian perform an insulin clamp procedure, which is used today in lieu of a glucose tolerance test. Alternatively go to a drugstore and purchase a blood testing meter and test your own blood. It's easy and the meters are inexpensive. Chromium Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) from the health food stores and Cinammin will help. A prescription medication such as Metformin may be appropriate.
1160836 tn?1332333769 Now if your late a least a week late from AF you should test but due a blood test with your doc just to make sure. I wish you luck and I hope its that your with child....SSBD and welcome to the clomid family..
Avatar n tn After reading that bit of information I mentioned it to a girlfriend who happens to be a retired RN. She recommended that I go and buy the glucose test strips that you pee on. They are inexpensive. Well my sugar was over 2,000. Through diet and exercise (I love to walk) it went into the 300 range. Now I'm on 2 generic diabetes drugs, and it's getting lower each day. Still watching what I eat and keep walking. BTW I thought I had the yeast infection from hell.
162948 tn?1205256292 also and i know this for a fact as this happened to me march of 2006 when i found out i was pregnant with my one year old i had negative tests on cheap hpt's the cheaper ones only pick up the higher amounts of hcg where as if you pay the extra it picks up from 10 rather than 20ml of hcg it could be that you have a low dose of hcg and it is not picking it up try getting a blood test, if the blood test is negative then put it down to stress.
393685 tn?1425816122 The 6 month course costs £460 but before you can start the course they send you off to have a full blood test that requires you to not eat or drink anything except water for 12 hrs. My test came back with low thyroid levels so i had to go to my GP at that time ( i have since moved address so my GP changed ). My GP informed me that i had hypothroidism and the bad news was i was going to be taking medication for the rest of my living life and the good news was it was FREE YIPeee !!!!.
280700 tn?1210287416 I have just received my blood test results for my test on cd21, and they detected ovulation, first time ever. Now on cd 27, and it's my first round of clomid, took 100mg on cd 2 to 6 inclusive.
1294995 tn?1330666336 I'll probably test on July 14 (next Wednesday) and if it's negative, get a blood test to confirm and start the process overrrrrr! Man oh man do I hope for a Spring baby! It's interesting to me because I always said that when we do try I would want to get prego the end of July or beginning of August so that I could have a Spring/Summer baby and that time is just right around the corner!!! (ha! When I thought that I would have a choice and not struggle with conceiving!
Avatar n tn Then I finally went to the Doc's who tested me for STIs and I also had a blood test for HIV/AIDS and all tests came back clear but confirmed that what I had was a yeast infection. The Doc prescribed the single tab (200mg) and some cream and the infection did subside after a week or so. I felt much much better for a months, but it came back again!!! But I think I have found the solution. Most people say you should not use harsh soaps in that area and I never did and I do agree.

472570 tn?1274689487 I plan to test whether environment is the key.I currently live near the mountains in the city with lots of shubs, grass etc. One advantage of my misery, is I have a very clean house, in an effort to minimize itching. I also might try benadryl after I check with doctor to see if its safe with my meds.
Avatar n tn I've noticed that i have an orange tongue too, i first noticed it over a month ago now, im an 18 year old male and have just found out i have gilbert syndrome, this is a lack of an enzyme in my liver that doesnt get rid of bilirubin which is then spread into the blood stream, the symptoms are yellowing to the eyes and can get to the skin.
Avatar n tn Just like many of you, I went to the doctor about three weeks ago and the first thing she said also was Herpes.She took a blood test and a normal pap and I still haven't received any results yet.At first I was pretty sure it was going to end up being Herpes but when I read the first comment posted and it sounded identical to mine, that made me feel a lot better.
Avatar n tn I had an ablation in feb06 also and blood tests confirm that i am pregnant and my hcG levels are doubling like they should be. my dr stated that they did not want me to come in until this week just to be sure though. i am going to the dr tomorrow and we are going to do an ultrasound.
