I feel very bad because I have been stocking up on syringes and test strips. My doctor has changed my meter and I have around 100 strips that I am not going to use and I do not want to throw away. Let alone that I have like 300 syringes too that are not used and are not going to be used. The saddess part of all I have 2 vials of Levermir that I am not going to use anymore. What can I do so I do not have to throw away? I do not know if I can donate or give away these items... Please help

You can donate them to Insulin for Life http://www.insulinforlifeusa.org/. They'll be grateful for strips, syringes & insulin to distribute to people who need them. Wonderful organization.

I sent extra stuff to Diabetic Supply Rescue
http://www.diabeticsupplyrescue.com/

do you stell have them let me know

I've often wondered about this as well. I will be switching meters and insulin therapy soon and want to donate my unused supplies to those in need. Thanks Gerri and Korrie for the leads on these two organizations.
