Hello all, my apologies if this posting/question is in the wrong place, I'm new to the site and still figuring out how discussions are organized.
Anyway, I'm in the market for a new blood test meter, ideally one with inexpensive test strips (hopefully that don't requite a prescription/you can get over the counter) that you/your doctor can easily download your readings from. I've been using the Relion Prime for the last year or so, and it has really affordable strips (like 100 for less than $20, no prescription required), however it's a real pain to download your overall results from, so your doctor can get an idea of what your blood sugars are throughout the day/week/month (and no, I'm probably not going to get a continuous glucose monitor anytime soon due to cost).
That said, anyone here have a meter they use that BOTH has affordable strips and lets you download your readings easily?? I've also used the OneTouch (expensive strips), Contour Next (seems a little cheaper), and the TRUEResult (before they discontinued it).
I'd be particularly curious to hear from anyone that uses the Freestyle, TRUETrack, or Prodigy glucose meters (the Accu-Chek has like 6 meters, and the strips don't seem that cheap).
