Free Glucosemeter

Dec 12, 2007
Almost every time a diabetic patient goes to the pharmacy to pick up their medications they also grab a pack of testing strips. They run through them like water. The problem is that there are no methods of creating reusable glucose testing strips yet. Every testing strip is to be used only once lest there be contamination from one test to the next. This burden is great and it is placed on the patient. Sometimes patients can get a monitor and some strip from their physician, but how often can you rely on drug representatives giving your physician your yearly supply of testing strips? It can become very expensive.

This expense is not including the gym costs, for exercising, or the medication costs. It does not even include your co-pay costs, if you have insurance. You would be harming yourself, and doing a disservice to your family if you tested yourself less often. It would harm you in both the long run and the short run. You can have acute problems with improper monitoring in the short run, and in the long term you will develop more strong symptoms of things like neuropathy and loss of feeling in your peripheral extremities.

The key is to monitor yourself, do it correctly, and do it, as many times your doctor deems necessary. But, how do you help defray the costs? The best way would be to get a monitor for free, get other free supplies, and get discounts on the strips. It is easy, and should be done by every potential diabetic and confirmed diabetic. How do you find these free and discounted diabetic items tools? There are various types of insurances for diabetics: apply for them. There are many online diabetes supply companies: use them. Please speak with your doctor, he may even be able to direct you t one of these sites. They are there to help you and will gladly supply information on the various programs in your area. Insurance companies know that diabetics will develop many problems if they fail to check themselves often. They want to eliminate paying out for medical procedures as they run themselves like a business. Take advantage of that by knowing that they will happily pay you, or discount your monitoring supplies.

Just ask them, and in this instance it is best for them to help you. Online companies that deal with exclusively diabetic equipment have so much that they can afford to discount it. They usually will ship it to you free too. They can send it out to you on a constant basis so you will never forget to grab them at the pharmacy. It will just show up on a regular basis. Remember that your physician's office gets free monitors to give to you. Just ask them for it. You then need to make sure that you purchase the correct testing strips. You can of course go online to get them cheap. Just remember to use the monitor often, it will add years to your life.
