its hard keeping up with your blood sugar testing when i cant even afford buying test strips they are so expensive and when you have to test several times a day it makes it even harder. i was told i can get them covered by my insurance but i dont know how to do that.

I went and I got the reli-on meter at Walmart, I do not know how I over-looked that price when I bought mine. lol.

you can get covered by going to your doctor and asking. When I got my diagnosis, my doc just put me on a prescription for the strips and lancets and gave me a One Touch Ultra-mini meter. But at that time, my strips were $30 for a 3 month or so, supply, which was great. then when my insurance changed a few years later, they were $30 a month! So now I don't use the prescription, I went and got a Tru Result meter and I pay only $9 for 50 at my local pharmacy. The meter was less than $20.
