You know how all alot of you say that you can get a free metor. Well it is not really true! Because I have tried the only way is if you are type 1or 2 and on Inlsuin with out being on insulin you are out of luck.

We got a free meter from OneTouch. The trick is to get from the company whose strips are covered by your insurance. Because strips are the once that burn a hole in your pocket.

I get a certificate in the mail every year for a free meter. havent paid for one yet. Im not on insulin just pill type medication. Like everyone says, just google it or got to the manufacture website. Good luck.

I have been diabetic for 25 years and have never paid for a meter. There are many sites including this one that offer free meters. If there is a brand you really like google them and they will give you a site. Most of them offer free meters. Its the
test stripe that are expensive.

LoL! when your profile picture is small, I looked at it and asked, Where'd he get a pic of a Wookie? LoL! The picture is clearer when it is bigger and it is a cute doggie. Is he yours?

Yes, also ask a Doctor or endocrinologist. If they don't have samples, then they can tell you where to go on line .

I got 3 free meters without telling them I was on insulin, and I got my father a free meter, telling them he was on pills, because he is.. So you can get meters for free, if you get diabetes forecast, or any of that. I got one from dlife.

I got a free meter from Bayer and Free style just by going to the website. I am type 2 but not insulin dependent. Now...I don't use those meters because they are too expensive to buy the strips for. I keep them as a back up for now.

Hello my friend,

I don't know where you have tried to get a free meter from, but you actually can get a free meter without being on insulin. I've received two free meters as well. I got my free FreeStyle Lite meter through the site below. You can click on here and get yours too.
