Something to keep in mind is that you could probably move to a more current meter which may be more accurate and require less blood at no extra cost. All you would have to do is call a company's help line and ask them to send you one. Tell them you test up to 10 times a day and it'll be delivered in a few days.
The BG meter companies make money from selling the strips, not the meters. If a company thinks it has a good chance of getting you to switch to using their meter then they'll be happy to send you one. At least that has been my experience.
And, yes, you may think you are happy with the older meter and that you don't care how much blood is required to test. But if you haven't actually tried anything that is potentially "better", how do you really know?
Just a suggestion for possible future reference. You seem to be rather focused on finding out what your BG is and, depending on just how old your meter is, a newer model might do a better job of this for you. Or not. But unless you dig into it further, how could you know?
