[IP] Re: Dropping and testing sodas

You can use any strips that test for glucose in urine.  Diastix is one
brand, PlanetRx.com has them for $5.99 for a bottle of 50.  I just keep them
in my bag of supplies that I always have with me.  You can also use some
meter strips, I know that some people have cut the one touch strips and used
them, but the plain urine strips are so cheap, I just use them.  They will
not change color for a diet drink, but will turn BLACK immediately for a
sugared drink.  :)

I think I am going to begin doing this as I drink fountain sodas from time
to time.  What kind of sticks do you use to test?

and stuff....how do carry around used strips in a sanitary manner?  >>
