    A1C Now Meters now available in Canada

    I've been trying to buy an A1C Now meter from my Canadian Location since Bayer discontinued them. American distributors will not ship to Canada.
    However, Oximetry Canada does. Their website is at wwwdotoximetrydot ca, but there is as yet no mention of the meter on the website.
    If you call them, however, at 1-800-361-6991 ext 222 you can order a meter with ten strips for $149.95 Canadian. I ordered one today.
    I'll let the forum know when it arrives.

    Are you talking about a glucose meter, or a home kit for checking A1c on a one-time basis? I think you don't mean A1c, since you refer to the strips.

    Shanny, actually ive heard of these things, they ARE for checking A1C and a kit like that will check it 10 times, which is a great deal for those who do not have insurance or for whom a copay applys or cannot get their docs to order an a1c or order enough of them... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rdTEG7MZRA here is a video about them...
