What should I do if my test strips expire before I use them all? Will they be less accurate if they have expired?

First I would definitely throw away the expired test strips as expired test strips can cause inaccurate readings. Now depending on where you received your test strips (mail order/pharmacy) try to contact that provider as they may be able to send you a new shipment of test strips right away (company policies may vary). If this does not work, definitely go out that very day and purchase some new test strips.
