Do you want to feel less burned out by this filthy disease? Just watch tv for a while for the latest "Accu-check Nano" commercial on tv. It is an ad for a blood glucose monitor (yes, that's right....a blood glucose monitor) and it has a background song sung by a chipper, sounds too young and cute, little girl: "Accu chec Nano- feels so right!" You got it...it "feels so right!" Every time I see that commercial I cant help but think "Oh, yeah! Each time I stab myself to draw blood it could not feel better!" C'mon - Accucheck LLC - THIS IS STILL A BLOOD GLUCOSE MEATER, NOT A CHRISTMAS TOY FOR A 4 YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL!

Love it, and did you know you can use "alternate site testing" that DOESN'T HURT AT ALL. Well technically I guess it doesn't HURT THEM AT ALL, because they don't do it. Lots is right it is how all this crap is marketed and sold. If they would stop coming up with catchy jingles and stop all the advertising in general you think maybe they could sell the strips a bit more cheaply ? Duh !!!!!

Cringe at that commercial & rapidly turn it off. If one more friend tells me I don't have to use fingertips to test, I'm gonna scream.

There should be an investigation into strip costs. Odd that they all cost the same. Price fixing?

I agree with lotsofshots. I hardly ever see commercials any more b/c we DVR just about *everything* I was watching the hockey game last night and paused it for 15 minutes to "clear" the commercials. Some shows, e.g. "Top Chef" seem to try to DVR-proof themselves by doing weird editing, mixing long commercials, short commercialss, short clips of show cut into commercials that make it harder but it's almost like a video game "darn, I saw two seconds of a commercial" but I rarely know what the commercials are for because I'm trying to avoid them!
