Re: [IP] meters

Holly -

I found that by participating in studies, you are given both meters and
strips.  I swear by One Touch, but
I've gotten other meters and strips which I've turned over to my nurse
educator or other diabetics.  They're expensive - at about $100 each!  I
know you'll hear from other people about your Fast Take, but I would love to
have it!  i would be happy to pay postage - but I know you'll get lots of
responses, and maybe other people
really NEED it.  I know my K-Mart near me always has the test strips
disappearing between Thanksgiving and Christmas, because peopsle can''t
afford the strips.  I have one in my house (of course) and one at work also,
because wehn it's low, I can't always tell, and need to check.

Very considerate of you to make the offer!    Jane
