    Not sure what the Walmart ReliOn meter and strips selling for, but this might be a better price?

    It sounds like a very good deal, think relion is very close in price but this is another choice.

    Maybe this wil start a price war on strips? I know our Giant Eagle offers 5 diabetes meds for free to get diabetics in the door. I was joking with the pharmacist last time I picked up my meds. I asked when they were going to offer free testing supplies. Most strips are over $100 per 100 at the pharmacy forcing us to go online or Walmart. We don't have any Krogers in the Cleveland area.

    Confused about blood sugar levels 2 hours after a meal

    I have read conflicting information about what is an acceptable blood sugar reading 2 hours after eating a meal. I've read 150 and under is ok and have also read that under 180 is ok. Which is it does anyone know?

  2. Type1Lou

    It varies based on how tightly you want to be in control. Here's what Gary Scheiner says in his book "Think Like a Pancreas" when he charts a one-hour post meal target. It should be 160 or less for very tight control; 180 or less for typical control; and 200 or less for looser control.
