Good expiration date?

how old are your strips? When is the expiration date?
It is recommended to do a control test every time you open a new box of strips, but I only do it when the strips expire within the next 12 months.

How important is It to do a control test? Wondering if I need to buy the control solution. Walmart doesn't sell it and I'm out

So it doesn't matter if the meter is old?

I have the Contour Next EZ and it is reliable. My insurance does not cover the strips but I can get them very cheaply on Amazon.

ok. I read the article and the meter I have is old. It is the One Touch Ultra I got in 2006 to test for low blood sugar. Do I need to upgrade my meter? I can still find test strips for it. I notice it isn't listed in the article, only the Ultra 2 and it didn't pass their test. I don't have a diagnosis from the doctor, he just said I could change my high glucose number. But I want to test myself anyway. Does your insurance cover test strips for pre diabetes? I know mine won't as I don't even have a diagnosis but I was wondering. This is so new to me even though my mom is diabetic. Thanks for your help!

Disregard the "push" for the One Drop meter. It is still a very informative article. It gives some very good points.
