Was wondering if any of you are having trouble getting glucose test strips,
several of the local pharmacies are completely out of almost all the brands
and they say that it due to a shortage of a certain chemical that is used in
manufacturing them,, and they can't get them at this time. I called the makers
of the EXCEL, which is a generic strip for use with the Bayer Elite XL meter
and they wouldn't say that it was a chemical supply problem but that it was a
manufacturing problem, and the strips would be available in about 6 to 8
weeks.that is quite a long time to be out of strips when you use 10 or 12 per
day. Anyone have any information about this problem, opr suggestions.
