I've been reading recently here on juvenation, the struggle that some people have to go through to get their meters and test strips as well as trying to pay for them. It's something i've never really thought about before -I'm Canadian and we have a good health care plan up here - but also, something i never knew happened. it seems so frustrating that on top of having diabetes you have to worry about getting the supplies.
So anyway, after reading posts about this, I felt bad knowing that i have about a dozen glucometers lying around the house that i have never used or used maybe once. I know there are some other diabetics in the same situation, so I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to send them to someone else who could actually use them, instead of having them sit in a drawer.
I'm not sure of the logistics of this idea, or even if it would work..but does anyone else have extra glucometers lying around? Or thoughts about this idea?? ...
i'm interested to hear what you guys think. :)
