A company called OneDrop just released a subscription service that comes with a glucose meter and unlimited test strips, and this is not a joke.
I'll write a full article later with more details, but I wanted to make sure you got the news right away. I will say that UNLIMITED does not mean as many as you are able to hoard (bummer). It means as many as you actually use.
Still, this could be really freaking awesome for those of you who
1. have crappy prescription coverage
2. have no prescription coverage at all
3. have a strict test strip limit
I got some great feedback after I sent out the Diabetic Thanksgiving Survival Guide last month. One of you kindly advised me that the survival guide can be used for more than just Thanksgiving dinner. I'm not sure why I didn't think of this, but apparently you can use the Thanksgiving Survival Guide for parties, special events, holiday dinners and any other way it works for you. So, in case you have upcoming special events, here's the link to download the Thanksgiving guide (again).
I've recently learned there's a great need for a diabetic-friendly meal plan service that tells you specifically what to buy, what to cook, how to cook it, and how many carbs are in it, etc. I need to know more about what that service needs to look like before I start working on it (confession: I've already started working on it a little bit). So, if you have some time today, can you click the link below and give me some direction, here?
Sure, I'll give you some feedback.
Sorry, Kara. I'm too busy to help you.
With Betic Love,
