Test 300-350 times a month, under an Endocrinologist care.
I test 300 per month. I also have good insurance (it's good to be a Teamster)
Insurance says that's too much and Endo's imply that 300 is excessive. And maybe if I was perfect and lived in a mechanical world where nothing fluctuated or changed I would need less strips but the menotony of an unchanging world would likely drive me insane. I am using my Dexcom again so I am able to put aside a few test strips here and there, of course we cant tell any professionals about that or they would end that. I don't buy into the end of world prediction stuff but if something huge happened how long could you survive on the supplies you have now, 30, 60 90 days?
I use about 300 or more. I test about 10 to 12 times a day.
3-4 times a day is better than nothing. So if I was you I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. He will be fine.
