Wet Behind The Ears
Wet Behind The Ears


I am 22 years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last week. My brother, who is now 12, was diagnosed when he was 3 so the concept of diabetes was not foreign but I never thought it would be something that I would have to face. Ironically, I found I was diabetic after applying for health and life insurance and being denied when my glucose was in the mid 400. (I am self employed.) Oh, I weigh 130lbs and have always been health conscious. Like all other type 1 diabetics I have to test multiple times a day and take insulin shots. Over all, I am very blessed to have found out when I did before complications developed. If anyone could share options for cheap testing supplies/discount programs I would greatly appreciate it. I have no insurance.

Hi! I don't know if you have Kroger Grocery Stores near you, but I found a meter there for $4.00 and my NP said it works great. The strips are $10 for 25 which is the best price I've found. They also had my insulin N and R for the best price as we are w/out insurance also.
I just found out a little over a week ago that I have early onset adult diabetes. I go through days where I am still shocked and others where I am a bit relieved b/c I was feeling so badly and didn't know why.
Good luck and God Speed to you

For meters, test strips, go to ebay & search SD Codefree. In the UK, the're a quarter of the price of other kits.
