BD is apparently not going to make meters anymore.
I am in no means in love with my glucose meter, but it is nice that it beams results directly to my pump.
However, other BG meter companies are offering free meters to people with BD meters who want to switch. Does anybody have a clue if this would involve a trade-in of the BD monitor? I don't really want to give it up if I can't find something that I prefer. I feel that the BD Paradigm Link I have is okay, but I'm really curious about the OneTouch Ultra2 and UltraSmart, as well as the itty-bitty sample size and no coding that goes with the Acensia Contour.
Tomorrow I may call up both companies and see what the deal is. I'd love to have mulitple meters to do multiple comparisons. I'll post whatever feedback I get from the two companies.
In the meantime, the insurance un-sureness (say that 5 times fast!) rages on. I have to call my former employer, because I'm not sure if I need to pay them for COBRA coverage, or if I need to call the insurance company and pay the insurance people. My former employer sent me a letter, which I promptly managed to misplace. I am in the midst of a post-wedding cleaning/redecorating spree, but if I don't find it by tonight, I should call somebody tomorrow. It's just a matter of knowing who to call.
Who is that? I still don't really know. I've also misplaced 2 prescriptions and the appointment sheet that says when I'm supposed to go meet with a dietician to reassess my meal plans. Ugh, phone calls galore tomorrow. I'm not exactly excited about this.
How are things with you?
