I was diagnosed yesterday and picked up the RX and my testing strips tonight on my way home from work. I anticipated starting the meds (Metformin) and AM testing with my new monitor like my Dr. advised tomorrow however; I see the meter calls for some kind of control test solution. What? That wasn't in anything. No one mentioned that. Do I have to buy that somewhere else? Also the "kit" came with 10 lancets but where do I get more of them? Oy this is going to be a huge learning curve for me.
