Diabetes NewsDiagnosis of diabetes in children does not signal an end to an otherwise normal life. Following all of the guidelines and using proper testing techniques can allow for a relatively ordinary and active lifestyle.

We Buy Diabetic Test StripsThough a diagnosis of diabetes for a child is a frightening moment to the child and the parents, there is a future that looks brighter than ever thanks to modern technology and developments in management of the disease. It is no longer a diagnosis that signals the end of activity and a productive lifestyle. Management is the key word, however.

Following the express orders of the physician, the endocrinologist if you have one, and other health care workers that can help you to make the needed changes is the way to give your child a successful shot at a normal life. Diabetes doesn’t go away and must be kept after for life, but those who have been diabetic from childhood and are now adults live, work, and walk among us undetected. It isn’t something that is obvious to others. Even dining out with friends doesn’t need to be a traumatic or embarrassing experience as your child will simply order something he or she knows can be eaten.

It’s tricky to figure out all of the details at first, but that’s what the health care professionals are there for. You’ll help your child to determine what can be eaten safely and how often to test the blood sugar with a blood glucose monitor and diabetic test strips. Other technology includes insulin pumps that automatically dispense insulin as needed and will help to keep the child from needing the old fashioned injections that diabetics have needed daily in the past.

Check your insurance rules and find out whether you qualify for advanced medical devices that can help with the management. If your insurance doesn’t pay for such supplies as the glucose monitor or the diabetic test strips, there is a way to get these expensive and necessary supplies at a discount. Diabetic test strips that are leftover and excess are sold to companies that collect them and resell them at a great discount. They are only sold to you if they are still within their freshness date, are correct for your particular model of glucose monitor, and are unopened and still sealed as when they were first purchased.

The reasons for excess test strips are many. Some have loved ones who have passed away or have moved to elder care facilities where they are supplied with them. Others have purchased a new blood glucose monitor and they still have extra boxes of strips that don’t work with their new monitor.

You may find yourself having extra strips frequently or occasionally. There are many reasons people have extra strips including the doctor changing your machine, testing yourself less frequently, a loved one goes into a nursing home that provides the test strips for them…and many more. If your boxes of strips meet our buying criteria, we can pay you cash the same day. We will pay for the boxes of strips and shipping via check or paypal, whichever you prefer. We have many repeat sellers because we pay fast and provide exceptional customer service! We purchase boxes that are not expired and are unopened.
