Re: Re: [IP] BD Test Strips vs One Touch Ultra

When we /I go anywhere, Always carry my Flash. Texas heat does not seem to 
bother it  I keep the BD meter at home.  BTW, I've started putting half of a 
vial of BD strips into a empty BD vial.  Now I don't have to spill them all 
over the floor trying to get a strip out of a new vial of strips :)
