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
