I seem to be a compulsive "tester".....I was just wondering if I am "out there" on how many Test Strips I use. I will say about 400-500 a month!!!! I get 300 a month covered on my insurance.

I test at least 4 times per day. I have changed to a grocery store brand strips & meter saving over $750 per year (88% savings). No advertisement here but the grocery store starts with a "K". Good luck.
Yes, I like testing a lot. It's the best way of helping keep our BG levels down. Now i've been cut back by the insurance to 200 ! So I'm trying to get back to at least 300, preferably more.
They're expensive - do you bear the cost of the extras?
150-200 per month
I do about the same that you do. :)
i use more or less 100 test strips per week
i use about 1200 strips per month
sorry per 90 days
I test 8-10 times on a regular basis there are times I test more when needed. I am lucky if you would call it that there are 4 diabetics in the house and some of them do not test as they should but they are T2 so I have access to more strips when needed. I do now prefer my little usb contur meter. If anyone uses the Breze 2 I have about 1000 strips and 2 meters up for grabs.
yup...i'm a pin cussion...:)
