    is this something to do with Tony?


    without sounding dumb …so the cost for a diabetic to test their blood is about 65c per go ….that runs into several hundreds of dollars per year ?

    I thought you join diabetes Victoria / Australia and get cheaper test strips through them ?

      These strips test your blood for ketones, not for glucose.

      If you’re a diabetic and have high blood glucose, you might test with these to see if you’re producing ketones, because you could be in Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

      Alternatively if you’re on the Keto diet you might use these to make sure you’re producing low levels of ketones.

      You are correct that the NDSS subsidise blood glucose test strips.

        These are also so much easier to use than the urine ketone test and also more accurate.

        Usually go for around $10 a pack in Sydney.

        Diabetes is expensive. Please find me a deal on the Freestyle Libra Scanners.. I spend $95 every 14 days.


          Difficult to find a deal on those as they are typically only available from Abbott directly. Sometimes you can get them cheaper from places like India but I am not sure if they have some sort 'region lock' which makes them only work with the reader or phone app if you are in certain locations.
