A friend has increased her BG tests from 2 to 6 tests a day. They also got into dieting and exercising. They lost more than 40 pounds. Last week my friend was informed by Social Security that it will not pay for more than 2 BG tests daily. Anybody know how to reverse such a Social Security ruling? Friend is much healthier physically and emotionally. Their A1C is less than 7.0. Most importantly they feel empowered to manage their diabetes with 6 BG tests a day. Cannot afford to pay for 6 strips daily. Is there a free source of BG strips for elderly diabetic Americans who cannot afford the number of BG strips they need to be fully empowered as they manage their diabetes? Help resolving this problem will be greatly appreciated.
