Testing is the quickest way to see what your body is telling you. I test 3-6 times a day, mostly to see what is giving me highs so I know to avoid it. I don't have insurance either, and I get my strips from Ebay. I have ordered twice and the product is not expired. I use TRUEread strips and get 100 for about $20 including shipping. Don't wait for the last minute to order is my only advice.

Monitoring is very important. Walmart sales a meter called Reli on the meter itself is like $8.00 and 50 strips are $20.00. if you don't have insurance this is the best way to go and the cheapest i've found yet. Hope this helps
