Do you have a meter which you like that takes relatively little blood & has reasonably price strips?

Strips will *never* be "cheap" because they are the money-making part of the business--just as film was the money-maker for Kodak. When film use "went away", so did Kodak.

Medicare pays for most of my testing supplies, so my cost is about $25 every 3 months or so (100 strips and lancets). I have been using a OneTouch Ultra II meter for over 10 yrs, and it still works great. They have newer models, but this one is certified for alternative-site testing (i.e. not just the fingertips). If you can manage alternative-site testing, then that is the way to go.
