I still have a One Touch Ultra I am not using. It needs a battery but worked fine when last I used it. I posted this last winter but forgot about it; i think someone contacted me but i am not sure. Let me know if you are interested. We can negoiciate the shipping charges. I would like to make sure it goes to someone who really needs it.

I am Type-2, diagnosed 6-8 years ago and until Jan.2010 just bumbled along watching the numbers go up and the meds change until Jan-2010 when I moved from finger-sticker to test and inject before every meal. I used a number of programs and out of shear frustration over record keeping and mental arithmetic I wrote a windows based program to do what I wanted it to do. I've placed it on our website to make it available at no cost to the community.
If your interested take a look at
Its purpose is to replace the log and facilitate watching what is happening. I'm open to making changes and enhancements if my requirements don't cover your needs.

Can Anyone Use a Box of Lancets?

I have a box of One Touch lancets that is open but about 80% unused. Can anyone use it? (I have a different meter nowadays and will likely never have a use for these.)

Comment by Jeff on May 6, 2012 at 6:23pm

I was given 2 or 3 different meters some have strips and possibly lancets i will send out free so long as you cover the shipping
