DH to investigate ‘bonkers’ rationing of diabetes testing strips


Not a load of tosh or some frivolous activity, for us insulin users. Those who are self adjusting and aiming for anything like decent control need to test several times per day. I've heard stories of people being limited to one test per day! People may have survived without testing in the "dark ages" but possiby this survival would have been less prolonged or at the expense of worse quality of life I agree we need cheaper strips however Agamatrix and Ypsomed sell cheaper strips ( wave sense Jazz and my life pure) and these appear to be very accurate
