I got a really nice one from Amazon.com. Its called a ditty bag and it holds my meter, stips and tons of lancets. It was around $32 but its fabric and since I am forced to carry one, I might as wel be stylish. It's green, khaki and purple stripes. Matches my cell phone case too.

I know at my wal-mart they have a silver case that you can carry your meter, insulin, syringes and other supplies. Its in the section where they have all the diabetes supplies

Also try the Customer Service Department of the manufactures of your meter. Explain the situation and they might even send you one free.

You can buy a new case at any Wal Mart store. Where they sale all the diabetic supplies, lancets, glucometers, ect.

You should be able to purchase one online from Walmart. Also you can use a digital camera case. I used one for a while with my other meter. I found a case that had a couple of pockets and areas big enough to hold what I needed to carry at Target, but any store that has camera accessories will have cases.

Do you have a Walgreens or Rite Aide or CVS close by they would carry them to. Or maybe try Amazon.com most of their items you get within two to three days.

Walgreens carries them too
Here is one style for $22.95 but they have some as low as $18.99

Great question! What meter do you have? That could make the difference on where to get the case and how much it will cost. You may be better off just keeping your meter as a spare and considering the purchase of a new meter with case which area sometimes offered FREE after rebates or when specials are going on. I bought a meter and test strips from www.americandiabeteswholesale.com for around $50 with 200 strips. The meter and case was virtually free and the combo saved me a lot over the costs from the big box drug stores (CVS, Walgreens, etc). If you are attached to your case or the extend of the damage, you may wish to consider having it repaired by a local tailor for a few bucks. Quite often it may not be worth fixing.

hi , how do you like the meter, is it the Arkray. was thinking about getting it. the price is great. Heather

I have the TruTrack. I like it. It is the same meter that I bought from CVS when I first started so I am using the CVS meter and have the one from ADW set aside. If that is the meter that Saber is talking about, I can just send him the extra case. That was why I had asked. I was impressed by the service from ADW and found a promo code on retailmenot.com that helped with $5 off as a code at checkout, making the shipping only $1.99 or so.
