You’ll need diabetic test strips, diabetic lancets, special footwear, specific vitamins, insulin pumps, blood pressure monitors, and pump supplies.
The newly diagnosed diabetic may not realize at first what is needed to facilitate a big change in lifestyle and self care. There is medical equipment needed, and there are many other expenses that are necessary to change the way you eat.
As far as diabetic medical supplies, you’ll need diabetic test strips, diabetic lancets, special footwear, specific vitamins, insulin pumps, blood pressure monitors, and pump supplies. Outside of medical, you’ll want to keep the appropriate items on hand in case of a wound or a skin issue.
Foods will need to change. No more sugary drinks and desserts or those that are packed with other carbohydrates that will react negatively to your newly diagnosed condition. Getting all of the bad temptations out of the cabinets and out of the fridge is important, but you really need to replace those things with delicious and appropriate alternatives.
“One of the easiest ways to save money on diabetic supplies is to
explore the option of buying resold test strips.”
If you try to just throw out all the cookies that you normally eat every day with your afternoon coffee, you are more likely to cheat and eat something you shouldn’t. By replacing the evil chocolate sandwich cookies with sugar free sugar wafers could mean the difference between success in your new lifestyle and failure to care properly for yourself. This is why new and appropriate foods for your home should be considered as a necessary expense that you’ll need to pay for in addition to the more obvious medical supplies.
Some of the expenses can be lessened by agencies that will help you find funding to pay for these things. You may qualify for some of the government programs that help people with lower income brackets to buy what they need. Although many things are covered by programs like Medicare, you may have just a bit too much income to qualify. In that case, you’ll need to find alternative ways to save money on your supplies.
One of the easiest ways to save money on diabetic supplies is to explore the option of buying resold test strips. The simple fact is, many people that buy their supplies in bulk find that for any number of reasons they may not need their strips anymore. As long as their excess strips are still sealed in the box with a non expired date they can sell their strips to organizations that buy them from them and then resell them to people who would otherwise have a tough time affording them.
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.
