Free Abbott FreeStyle Insulinx meter plus 50 InsuLinx test strips

Fill in the form from the link above and Abbott will (probably) send you a voucher for a free FreeStyle Insulinx meter, and a voucher for a free 50 count vial of InsuLinx test strips.

Thanks for the post about the Insulinx. My pump calculates insulin dosages, so I will stick with the FreeStyle Lite meter. When I am out of strips I have been using Walmart's Relion meters until the next shipment of FreeStyle strips arrive. The newer Relion have consistently been giving me higher readings than my FreeStyle, when my BG is over 100. The higher my BG, the bigger the point spread! I have stopped using Relion. I am going to start ordering additional FreeStyle strips online at the following link. They will fill the gap until my next shipments arrive. I have not ordered from this site before, but the prices are great. I hope there are no problems ordering from them.

Freestyle has a new meter the Insulinx coming out soon in Europe and Canada. I've started a separate group for those interested.

Its called the Insulinx, and it not only checks your blood sugar, but can help calculate your insulin dose for your next meal. (I'd love to get one).

If you're on mealtime insulins and interested in learning more, you can join the discussion at the new group:

I love freestyle meters the best. Unfortunatly my daughters new insurance wont cover the test strips, we are back to the One touch. One touch is OK, but you need too much blood compared to the new freestyle test strips.

Also, I get up quite a bit during the night to check my daughter's BG's and I could not do without the little flash light on her freestyle light meter!!! I will be buying the test strips out of pocket from time to time because to me it's worth it!

I often have wondered why this didn't already exist.

Wimpy=weak. The lighting on the Flash meter was better than the Lite...
Esp the strip light!
Comment by Luca Bertagnolio on October 19, 2010 at 6:15pm
Why do you say "wimpy"? I think it's a useful feature when checking BG at night, or in a low light situation. This is why I use a Lite as my primary meter, and a normal FreeStyle as backup in case of failure.
