What is the cheapest way to monitor blood sugar levels?
I have NOT been diagnosed with diabetes - else I'd do what the doctor recommended. But my brother and some other relatives have Type 2. And I want to improve my diet. I thought I might benefit by keeping an eye on it... but it seems the cost of the test strips add up.
I have read that some devices use color coded strip, the advantage being that you can tear the strips and get multiple uses from them. Is this any good?
Which not so expensive systems do you use, and what are the good and bad features?
