My fiance has been out of work for over a month. We REALLY need help with test strips. Everything else we have been able to get at a low cost, excluding test strips.Has has been a roofer all his life and cannot go back to work for another month .IF anyone has any extras (teststrips) that the would be willing to donate we would appreciate any help. He has a TRUEresult monitoring system.

Any help would be an answer to our prayers
Thanks…Lisa and Jose

I order my strips from Amazon…if you shop around, you can get some pretty good deals. I've hit some where my strips were 18 cents or less per strip. I have the same meter your fiancĂ© has.

You can get them on Ebay usually for a good price, just make sure the expiration dates are listed in the sale.

Another option is the Reli-On meter and strips from WalMart or Sams. The meter is I think less than $20.00 and the strips are $9.00 for 50. It's a good deal.

You can also check with local churches to see if they offer any medical supplies.

I hear you. I don't have insurance either and that is why I know these things. LOL

Actually I was in Walmart today (don't tell anyone!) and I checked out the meter. It's the Reli-On Prime for $17.00. There are other Reli-On meters but they are more.

Do you have insurance? Have you tried online websites? Sometimes you can get low cost test strips…wish you all the best. God bless you both. And may your husband recover fast from that heart attack.
