Ordering the Right Amount of Test Strips
Ordering glucose or cholesterol test strips on line for your home use monitor or meter is a handy convenience. However, there are many models to choose from and many strips have expiration dates. Ordering more than you need will cancel the savings since you may have to discard them on account of the expiration date. For safety and accuracy, it is important to stick to those strips that are recommended by the manufacturer of your monitor, meter or device. Order or purchase strips online if those strips or panels are made by reputable manufacturers, avoid suspisciously low-cost ones that may turn out to be worthless counterfeit strips.
