Is it tough being able to afford medical supplies for your diabetes? Glucose meters can be expensive but I found one which is bare bones basic and compact.
Offered by CVS drugstore this meter runs around $10.00 and strips are relatively inexpensive. They offer two versions and both models are compact.
What is the catch you ask? Will for one thing this little meter only stores up to 99 readings, so you have average your readings yourself. This is a perfect meter if you are underinsured or not insured. Just keep track of your readings with the enclosed booklet.
This meter is great because it attaches to the top of your test strip container, pull the test strip out, put in the slot, take the lancet, prick and you’re done in four seconds. This is also great in the test strips require no coding and very little blood to get results in 4 seconds.
Also great is you can get fifty test strips for $40.00 another plus in these tough economic times. You can find these meters at CVS. Walgreens and Rite Aid. Find them in the pharmacy counter and pick up a easy to use meter.
I can say with certainty with the ease of use as I have been using it for the past two months with no problems. I highly recommend these little meters.
If you are a fashionista, this little meter comes in four colors: black, blue, red and purple. So for those teens out there, you can afford a meter to match every outfit.
Remember there small enough to fit in a normal sized purse, buttpacks and regular handbags without taking up a lot of room.
