Welcome to our website! I have to ask what Gabby asked as to whether you are here in the US or in Afghanistan because sending you a meter may conflict with overseas trade regulations and also whether the test strips would be available to you. There are many patient assistance programs, clinics, trials and other paths that I could direct you to but I would need to understand where you reside. The meter is the least expensive problem… the test strips are quite expensive.

Are you still in Afghanistan or here in the US? What kind of insulin do you use? The doctor that you get your prescription from should have a way for you to get a meter and strips.

My doctor gave me my meter, I assume he got it for free (it is a one touch) since he did not charge me for it, I checked my bill.
