Hi Ann I have had type 2 diabetes for years and my doctor has given
me a free glucose meter but the supplies you have to pay for unless
you have medicare, medicaid, or insurance. I bought a cheap one at
walmart for $8.88 at one time. It is called ReliOn and the strips are
not really expensive, something like 50 for $21.00 or so. they are
always advertising on tv about getting your diabetes meds and such
for free and delivered to your house if you have medicare. But check
with your doctor to see if he gives the meters away to his patients.
I hope this helps you some. Debby in Louisiana
