Most insurance companies will supply you with a meter and the test
strips if you’re diagnosed with type 2. If you don’t have insurance,
check with your local hospital and see if they will supply you with the
supplies. Also, your local health department may be of some help.
Most hospitals now have a diabetes education department where you can
get information. Type 2 diabetes is at epidemic stages so there is
usually some help if you can look around. If your in a small town
area, check with a larger town near you.
I know I turned in 2 meters that I had to our diabetes education unit
at the hospital so they could give them to someone who didn’t have
insurance or needed one badly. My insurance sends me a new one every 2
years. I have to test 5 to 6 times a day since I”m on insulin. If you
have any questions that you think I may know the answer to, feel free
to email me anytime Ann.
