Diabetes can be an expensive disease to manage, especially in today’s economic climate for women who also suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. But there are ways to make your healthcare dollars stretch a little further if your heatlh insurance leaves something to be desired.
Shop around for meters. Virtually every manufacturer of blood glucose monitors offers rebates for a free or next-to-nothing meter at some point. In some cases, a monitor may be offered free with the purchase of test strips. Ask your pharmacist for pointers on current meter deals.
Buy bulk. If low-carb prepared foods are a part of your diabetes meal plan, visit warehouse stores to buy bulk for better prices. If you’re shopping regular retail, stock up when your favorites go on sale.
Extra Tip : Test strips for blood glucose monitors are one of the biggest expenses of regular diabetes care. So when you buy a monitor, find out how much the test strips cost and take that into consideration when budgeting for your health. In some cases, lower-cost generic or store brand test strips may be a cheaper and no-less-effective option. For much more information about diabetes and PCOS visit our website by clicking on
