Having Diabetes can be a big enough problem on its own, but the cost of diabetes testing supplies can be even more of a problem. It’s not enough that you have to buy everything from medical companies that charge way too much for it, but having to buy this stuff day in and day out can be a big strain on your budget. Plus, that’s not all.
How many times have you hesitated on testing your blood because you didn’t want to waste any of your test strips? On top of that things like a blood glucose meter can cost an arm and a leg. Don’t you have enough expenses already, but to put something like this on top of it doesn’t help one bit at all.
I also don’t feel comfortable with glucometers that are super cheap. Who can trust a glucometer for $5? I know that if the companies are skimping on the price then they must be buy them from China, and they are probably made with really cheap materials. I know that I don’t want to use that on my body.
If you’re anything like me I tried to reduce my expenses on diabetes supplies by buying cheaper test strips but they just don’t seem to work as well. Plus, when I buy the cheap strips I feel like they might not be telling me an exact measurement of my blood sugar level. If I am unsure about my glucose level I really don’t feel comfortable eating the foods that I love and enjoy.
