Speaking of meters

Every few weeks I go through my diabetes shelves to clear out the empty boxes. It’s been a while since I sorted through the supplies that have built up.

There were a few empty meter cases (note that of the entire collection there were only three that were not black – two gray and one blue).

A few lancet devices that are neglected for the Multiclix/FastClix sibling pair. There’s a storage bag of lancets and control solutions that goes with this set. I may change a lancet once or twice, but I can’t remember the last time I used the control solution.

And meters. Lots and lots of meters. I have great (read $0 copay) insurance on one particular brand of strips, so as of now, the rest of the options sit neglected in the storage bin.

Speaking of meters, a few weeks ago, I tried to win a contest from the Students with Diabetes conference for an iBGStar meter. Cherise helped me make the video after midnight during our sleepover. We had fun, and I think the video was a good mix of marketing and my brand of humor (read: sarcasm). Hope you laugh watching it even half as much as we did while we were making it.

Late breaking meter news. Apparently, Sanofi was so “entertained” by my video (even though I didn’t win) that they dropped an iBGStar meter off for the Students with Diabetes folks to send to me. Woot!
