I have no insurance so glucose testing supplies are a big expensive problem. I have a pharmacy where common oral diabetic meds with prescriptions are FREE. But the testing supplies just kill my budget. Most meter strips cost between $.75 and $1.00 each. If you test 3-4/day it is very costly. Found a new meter (Advocate) that was less then $20. AND the strips were about $.13 each. Have been testing for a week now against my current meter (Accu chek Aviva strip cost .50-.75 each) and the test results are very close. I recommend this item.
