"No problem at all, I have had a number of different meters over the years and in general one is pretty much like any of the others. Some claim to be more accurate but Consumer Reports did a study and they were all within percentage points of one…"

"Thank you very much Clare, I feel a lot better about the change. The accucheck, was so easy never a problem at all. A little piece of mind knowing freestyle will be the same, or close. Thanks again."

I'm so glad you found this site as well. I too found it completely by chance and the friendships I have forged and the advice I have gotten from people who have even more experience than I do has been extremely helpful and I always look for ways to pay it forward. If I can help in any way please feel free to ask. I have a lot of respect for T3's as they call it here, parents, friends, spouses, and anyone else who cares for or about PWD. Welcome again to TuD I hope will find answers and support and eventually be able to give answers and support as we are all in this together.

Welcome to the family!! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of what you will learn is that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and vent to, if needed.

Hello there. I lived in Lexington for many many years. I was an Educator in Wayland and Arlington. Have you called Harvard Pilgrim? Call them explain the situation. My cousin 96 who lives with me has Harvard Pilgrim and they have been great to them. Why don;t they give you a meter that the test strips fit. Reed
