Your question is pretty frequently asked and with good reason. The strips are probably the most expensive part of diabetes testing. You may wish to contact the manufacturer of the meter you have to explain your situation and ask if they have any programs. You may also ask about any clinical trials they may be aware of. Also, check with United Way Agencies and/or the local social service agencies in your area. Think city, county and state agencies. Talk to your doctor. Ask local hospitals of any plans or programs they may know of. The key is about networking to let others know of your need.
