If Victoza is a once a day shot, why do you need to carry it around with you all day??

You could just get a hard eyeglass case from an eye doctor or walmart.

Note: I took my first Victoza shot today. GREAT RESULTS!
0.6ui plus my 10ui humulog, and my 2 hour PP was 71!!

Once I get to the 1.2, I still plan on using insulin. Just a tiny fraction though, and most likely in the mornings. Maybe 2-3 ui.

My current understanding of the ReliOn meters is that Arkray makes the ReliOn Mini and Confirm and Abbott makes the ReliOn Ultima.

Anyone know where I can get a carry case for the Victoza and needs to keep in my purse?

Reli-on was bought by Arkray USA who makes the Glucocard line of meters.
Glucocard meters are supossed to be very accurate and the strip prices are cheap.
And if you have a Glucocard meter, the reli-on strips work in those meters, at least the meter that I have.
