7-8 times a day = ~230 per month
I just downloaded my daughters pump info. last night. We had tested 748 times for April & May. So we check about 374 times a month. Poor little fingers.
My insurance company recently started not only restricting the meter and strips to only the Abbott Freestyle Lite, but also to a limit of 206 strips per month. My endo got me authorized for 250 a month, but I have hypoglycemic unawareness so I tend to test more often anyway.
I test about 250-300 times a month. Quite a lot of the time I do less. I get loads more though, off the NHS
Me 200 per month. my finders and body can't take more than that.
about 200 times a month. uggh!
socialized medicine pays for 90 a month, i love target for cheap strips.
Last month I used 375 but over the last 3 months I have used 1200 or 400 per month on average. I am still learning carb counting and not yet super sure about what I am doing. My insurance company limits to 204 per month unless you have prior authorization which I do have for 300 strips a month, but the CDE at the clinic is trying to get it increased to 12 per day or 1080 in 90 days, if she can then they'll send 1100 because they come in boxes of 50. I would much rather pay $ 60 for 1100 strips than $ 60.00 for 900 strips, or $ 60 for 750 strips which is what the idiot endo wrote the last rx for.
I also feel like a compulsive tested I test at least 12 times everyday , if on holiday , exercising or going out it can be much more than that. My dr said its a waste cause not that much can happen in an hour but for me its psychological and i feel panicky if I want to test and don't.
i know, i dont use that many but if i didnt have to think about covering the cost of the extras id feel much more relaxed...
