If you find that you have been diagnosed with a diabetic condition, you will most likely be advised to use diabetic test strips to check your blood glucose levels. There is a very large market out there that will sell those strips to you either online, in the pharmacy, or even in the large grocery markets. The industry is set to explode as more and more people are being diagnosed and must begin to care for themselves.


Watching your blood glucose levels is the first line of defense in controlling your diabetic condition. They are very expensive, however, so it will be to your advantage to find a reasonable source for this essential medical testing equipment so you are never left without them. Keep them handy so you can perform yourself tests as directed by your physician.

Accurate readings require some knowledge on your part. You must follow a regimen that will allow for the best readings. Use control solutions. Every time you open a new box, you will test one strip to see what it reads and can be sure you are getting an accurate reading from there on within the strips in that particular box. The test results for that box should be good as long as you take care not to leave the remaining strips exposed to the air.

Watch your meter to be sure it is coded as it should be. Don’t adjust your medication until you do a control test. Lancets should be used only once, as you will experience potential infection, which will cause the lancet tests to be more painful than necessary.

You will want to be certain that the strips you buy work well with your glucose meter. Name brand strips work best. Generic strips and third party strips are available in Asian countries and throughout Europe and may be incorrectly formulated for use with certain meters. Check to see whether the strips you are buying are designed for use with the glucose meter you are using.

Some diabetes patients may be eligible for help from Medicare to purchase their supplies. That includes the purchase of test strips. Medicare eligible patients may also have classes available to help in the management of their diabetes. These classes explain the test strips and how they work with the glucose monitors. If you have access to classes of this type, take advantage of them for best results.

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.
