Hello, my name is Sarah, I just joined this site and am looking forward to learning all I can about this disease, I am also looking forward to getting to know everyone here. I was diagnosed with Diabetes T2 yesterday, my numbers are not tremendously high, my doc said that the numbers that came in for me would be considered controlled for a long time diabetic. I chose to go on Metformin to try to get the numbers lower. My doc wants me to check my levels a couple of times a week at different times of the day so we can make sure the meds are working the way they should, my problem is I don't know which testing device, strips, lancets to buy. My insurance won't cover any of that since it's all over the counter now. I cannot afford the strips for the Accu-check plus, which is the prescription the doc gave me, I am looking for advice on something very affordable and easy to use.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help you can offer,
